Wills & Trusts

Just a guess… if you’ve thought about making a Will before but haven’t done it, you’ve probably said one of the following:

‘It’s too expensive’

‘Everything I own will automatically go to my spouse or children’

‘None of my possessions are significant enough for a Will’

These are common misconceptions- don’t be a fool!

Around 60% of people in the UK have not made a Will, risking their possessions, money, property and dependent children being left to someone they have not chosen. It is extremely important to make sure you and your family have a Will, should the worst happen.

Your Will sets out what you would want to happen to your possessions, money and property when you pass away. Collectively, these are known as your ‘estate’. If you pass away without a Will, the law decides what happens to your estate, and this may not be what you would have wanted.

Making a Will is the only certain way to ensure that your partner, children, or relatives inherit what you intend e.g. possessions, money and property.

Undoubtedly, you’d like to make this difficult time for your family much easier and less stressful for them, and the way to do this is by writing your Will.

Additionally, making a Will can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax (IHT) your family will have to pay on your estate.

Our dedicated solicitors, can advise you on the best course of action when writing your Will, and help by ensuring your Will is completely valid.

People often say that they haven’t done their Will yet because they think it should be left until they’re older.

However, Claire Chapman of Wosskow Brown said: “as soon as you buy a house, you should write your Will.”

We can advise on:

  • Single and mirror Wills
  • Property protection Wills
  • Lifetime trusts
  • Long-term care issues
  • Resolving estate matters after death
  • Free and secure storage

A Country Mile

I was particularly impressed with the greeting and welcome I received on my very first visit. I had called into three solicitors on Regent Street that day and yours was a 'country mile' better welcome than any of the others. Friendly, smiling, welcoming, down to earth and kind reception staff. This was the reason I chose your firm.
