It is a staggering statistic that most people do not have a Will which can leave chaos and upset for those left behind. Whether the sale of a property, financial assets or even prized possessions and jewellery, should ideally be allocated according to the wishes of the recently deceased.
If you use a solicitor to make your Will, their expertise can help to minimise Inheritance Tax, avoid any legal pitfalls that could render a Will invalid. Whilst going through the process, it may also be necessary to have Trusts to protect financial interests.
Ultimately, a Will helps family and friends to grieve without the added burden of significant administrative stress and potentially, a long and painful court case or going through probate.
Ensuring YOUR wishes are respected.
Making a Will can be very difficult and involves key decisions however, not making a Will is infinitely worse. The people who suffer if a Will has not been made, are the ones we love and who are left behind.
