Wills writing solicitors Preston

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.

FAQs

What is Wills and Probate?
 
 

Wills and Probate is an area of law that deals with the writing of Wills and the administrating of a person's estate after they have died. There are also other aspects of this which include:

How much do solicitors charge for Wills?
 
 

How much solicitors charge to make a Will depends on the complexity of the Will. The cost of making a Will for a couple may also be more than for a single person. At Forbes Solicitors, we offer a fixed fee Will making service, so you know how much your Will is going to cost.

What happens if you die without making a Will?
 
 

If you die without making a Will, your estate will be subject to Intestacy rules, which governs who can inherit depending on their relationship to you. For example, if you are co-habiting with your partner and have children and you pass away without a Will, then only your children will inherit your estate and your partner will not automatically inherit anything. However, if you are legally married or in a civil partnership, then your spouse will inherit some or all of the estate.
