Making a Will

Your Will is a document that lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death.

Last Will and TestamentIt is not not be complex or expensive to make a valid Will. We recommend that you use a Will writer to ensure that the Will will do what you want it to do and that it is valid when it becomes times to execute it. DIY or off the shelf Wills can be challenged and the reason is because they have not been validated properly.

We make sure that your Will is formally witnessed and signed to make it legally valid. This ensures that the likelihood of a challenge after is has been read is kept to a minimum.

 

If you want to update your Will, you need to make an official alteration (called a ‘codicil’). If significant changes are needed it is often just more practical to make a new one.

It remains a surprise to many that only 60% of the population have a Will. That means that 4 out of every 10 die in what is known as intestate. This means that they state decides upon what happens to your money, property and possessions when you die. This process is not quick, and may not be what you or family would have wanted. We’d suggest that’s an unnecessary situation to leave your family with and one that is unavoidable.

Free review

If you already have a Will, we are more than happy to provide a FREE review. This is recommended if your current one is over ten years old. Friends, relationships and family dynamics alter over time and this is why a review is recommended. In later years a review more frequently than once a decade is often sensible.
