Wills - Larcomes

Big enough to specialise, small enough to care.

Wills

Will Writing Services

Making a Will is something that most of us do not consider doing but it is important to ensure that our affairs are properly in order for our loved ones when we die. Making a straightforward Will is a relatively simple process and should not cost as much as some might think. However, in spite of this, seven out of ten people in the UK die without a Will.

Contrary to popular belief, just because you are married, your surviving spouse, in the absence of a Will, will not automatically inherit all.  If there is no Will in place, the management of your estate and how it is distributed will be subject to the law of intestacy and decided by the law. The procedure can be lengthy and stressful for your loved ones and your wishes may not be fulfilled in the way you had intended.

Benefits of having a will in place

  • A Will safeguards your wishes regarding the distribution of money, property and assets after your death and allows you to name your beneficiaries
  • You will make the legal process much simpler for your family and loved ones
  • Without a will in place, the process can be time-consuming and stressful. Your estate will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law, which may not be in line with your wishes.
  • A well drafted will can minimise the Inheritance Tax bill
  • You can appoint guardians of choice if you have children or other people who depend on you
  • You can nominate executors of your choice

Trusts

Trusts can be set up during your lifetime or through your Will. Whilst not the primary reason for setting up a trust, tax remains an important consideration. We can provide you with specialist advice on how to maximise legitimate opportunities for saving tax through the use of trusts, setting out comprehensive inheritance plans that are in the best interest of you and your family.

This is a highly complex and constantly changing area of law and specialist trust and inheritance planning team at Larcomes can provide you with clear, up-to-date, professional advice on how to plan ahead for your future and for that of your beneficiaries.
