Wills Solicitor London

"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Benjamin Franklin

Unfortunately Death is a certainty and there is no way that it can be avoided.

Do you know, with certainty, what will happen to your assets should you pass away without making a Will? Most people assume that their entire Estate will pass to their surviving spouse/partner and if there is no spouse/partner, then to their children. This is NOT how the Intestacy Rules apply!

Wills

Wills

The following people have no right to inherit where someone dies without leaving a will:

  • Unmarried partners
  • Lesbian or gay partners not in a civil partnership
  • Relations by marriage
  • Close friends
  • Carers

Worse still if there are no surviving relatives who can inherit under the rules of intestacy, the estate passes to the Crown.

If someone makes a Will, but it is not legally valid, the rules of intestacy will also apply as if you had not made a Will in the first place. We will ensure that if you leave a Will, it will be valid and your nearest and dearest are looked after in accordance with your wishes.

We can also store your original Will in a secured offsite, fire proof safe for a one off charge of 25 plus VAT including registration on the Certainty Database. Alternatively, you can take your original will with you.

It is important that your Will is valid and up-to-date. Did you make a Will some time ago and now your situation has changed?

Our experienced Solicitors can assist you with all your requirements and ensure that you have considered a number of factors, such as:
