What you can expect from our will solicitors
First and foremost, our legal team’s aim is always to get everything sorted out quickly and painlessly with minimal disruption to you. Your will solicitor can also cut out all jargon and red tape if needed so that you can remain completely comfortable, with a full understanding of the process ahead.
Our team will also be able to consult you on everything including trusts, gifts and tax. Meanwhile, we can make sure that all your requests are included and fully explained within the document, so that your wishes are respected once you’re gone and the possibility of will disputes occurring is dramatically reduced.
Tax advice and guidance
During the will writing process, we also need to think about tax implications. In meetings with your solicitor, they can gain a clear understanding of your circumstances in order to make sure that your will is structured to be as tax efficient as possible.
If you have assets worth more than £325,000, it is worth remembering that these will be subject to Inheritance Tax (IHT) of 40%. By making the most of the various exemptions available, we can really help you to maximise the amount you are able to leave behind to your family and friends.
When planning for the future, our solicitors can also help you to appoint Lasting Powers of Attorney as well as providing you with will writing and updating services.
