A will is a document that sets out who is to benefit from your property and possessions after your death. A properly drafted will ensure protection to your loved ones and prevent Family disputes arising. Divorce invalidates a will unless a contrary intention is shown in the will. We can advise partners in relation to the characteristics of a mirror will and mutual will and draft it accordingly. It is very important to take into account of the inheritance tax aspects and to have a proper estate planning whilst drafting a will. This is to ensure efficient tax planning in place when the estate passes on to chosen beneficiaries. Probate is a process by which the administration of an estate takes place by giving the executor the legal right to distribute the estate.
It is advisable that a will is prepared by an expert for your peace of mind.
