Why should I consider legal assistance when writing a will?

A will should be written carefully and can very quickly become complex. The wording of a will has to be very clear and as soon as it is slightly incoherent, the will can become invalid. We strongly advise working with an expert solicitor when writing a will. They can help you with the following:

  • Consider your assets abroad, e.g. property or bank accounts;
  • They can provide you with inheritance tax advice
  • Simplifying the probate process;
  • Making sure that beneficiaries who are dependent on you are considered;
  • They can provide you with the advice you need to consider your options as to whether a trust is appropriate;
  • Making sure children, stepchildren or foster children are treated equally;
  • Making sure your will is coherent and valid; and
  • Making sure your will is executed correctly.

If we can assist you with your questions, feel free to contact us.
