Who needs a will and why?


Without a valid Last Will and Testament, your assets will be distributed according to the rules of Intestacy. The rules of Intestacy lay down a rigid method of estate distribution and take no account for your wishes, regardless of what your family say.

Married Couples

Without a Will you cannot be certain your children will benefit from your estate.

Unmarried Couples

Without a Will your partner may not receive anything! Your entire estate will probably be divided between your children; if you don’t have any children then your assets will be shared between your relatives.

Divorced or Separated

Make it clear whether you do or don’t want your ‘ex-spouse’ to benefit from your estate.

If you are separated, then your spouse is your next of kin.

Parents of Young Children

By making a Will you can ensure that the Courts are aware of who you wish to care for your children in the event of your death and at what age you wish your children to receive their inheritance (18, 21 or 25).

A Will can be changed by rewriting which incurs a charge. However if the Will is maintained as a live document using our legal storage service, this allows for changes/additions to be made without additional rewriting charges.

How long does it all take?

The initial consultation and collection of details plus instruction takes on average and hour and a half. The preparation to completion in general terms takes a week depending on complexity.
