Wills & Estate Planning

Without an appropriate Will in place, your family and friends could be faced with unnecessary problems at the worst possible time. These can include financial hardship, significant delays in accessing your assets and no guarantee that your money will go to the intended recipients.

What might happen to your assets in the absence of a Will?

  • Your spouse or civil partner may not receive the whole of your estate
  • Your estate may have to pay more inheritance tax than necessary
  • Your home may be at risk from residential care fees
  • Unmarried partners may receive nothing

You’ll want to be sure the assets and wealth you’ve accumulated and worked hard for are passed to the right people, and avoid paying more tax than required.
