Wills

A Will is one of the most important documents that you will ever make. It is an effective way of protecting your family and your assets.

It is a common misconception among married people that there is no point in making a Will because everything will go to the survivor. Sometimes property has to be divided in a way you would not expect and in some cases a surviving spouse may be deprived of their home. Others say that they have nothing to leave, but the estate can include any house, death in service benefits, payment from any occupational pension scheme, damages in the event of accidental death and life insurance policies.

We specialise in all aspects of Will Writing. Making a Will with us is uncomplicated and great value for money. If you are unable to come to our office, we can visit you in the comfort of your own home at a time convenient to you. We appreciate that everyone's circumstances are different so we take time to give you advice on writing your Will so that you can make an informed decision what your requirements are. We then prepare a tailor made Will for you.
