Wills & Probate Solicitors helping you and your family

Making a Will allows you to control what happens to the assets which you have accumulated during your lifetime. A Will also enables you to protect your family and friends and control who should look after those dearest to you.

If you do not make a Will, you will die intestate. This means that strict legal rules apply as to how your money and property is distributed.


Should I make a Will?

  • Ask yourself the following:-
  • Do you own any assets? (Bank Account, Property etc)
  • Do you have children?
  • Do you have young children, would you feel safer appointing a legal guardian in case something happens to you?
  • Are you married or in a civil partnership?
  • Are you divorced or going through divorce proceedings?
  • Are you separated?

Would you like advice to minimise Inheritance Tax so that your family benefit and not the tax man?


If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, then it is strongly advisable that you make a Will.

Our specialist Will writing solicitors have extensive experience in preparing Wills to cover all circumstances. Making a will is the only way of ensuring you make suitable provisions for your children, family and any dependents.


You can also address the following matters:


1. Your funeral wishes

2. Choose your Executors

3. Make gifts of personal belongings

4. Make monetary gifts

5. Create Trusts to protect your children or someone with a disability

6. Inheritance Tax planning
