If you need to make a Will or amend a Will, then our experienced solicitors can help you. A Will is an important legal document which sets out who will be responsible for dealing with your estate after you die and who will benefit from it. If you do not have a Will, then your estate will be distributed in accordance with intestacy rules, which may mean those who you wish to benefit, may not. For example, if you are not married or in a civil partnership with your partner, they will have no automatic right to inherit.

Making a Will also makes things a little easier for those left behind. When writing a Will, it's important to consider the following:

  • Whom you wish to be your executors

  • Guardians for any young children you may have

  • Who is to benefit from your estate?

  • Plans for inheritance tax

If you have a Will already, but there has been some major change in your life, such as a divorce, you may need to change your Will accordingly.
