Will 
Writing

Your will tells everyone what should happen to your money, possessions and property after you die (all these things together are called your estate). If you don't leave a will, the law decides how your estate is passed on and this might not be in line with your wishes. 

Why Use a Solicitor to draft your Will?

Some people want to draft their own will and that is fine if their estate is small and uncomplicated.  Some people are tempted by the offer of a cheap will online but you should always read the small print to avoid any scams. There are also many other businesses you could use to make a will, but often these are not regulated. Because of this, you can’t guarantee that your will is valid or that you have a right of redress if the will is not drafted properly. Our team of solicitors at LegaCare are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and our team are specialists in will writing.

By Making a Will You Can:

  • Avoid family disputes

  • Plan for and/or reduce Inheritance Tax

  • Make gifts to family and friends

  • Appoint Guardians and Trustees for children (under 18)

  • Give specific personal belongings or jewellery

  • Leave gifts to Charity

  • Create Trusts to protect children, vulnerable relatives or property

  • Choose your Executors

  • Set out your funeral wishes

Our Solicitors have a wealth of experience in drafting both simple and complex wills. In our first meeting with you which is always free (irrespective of salary or savings), we will discuss your wishes and what’s important to you so that we can tailor the will to your specific requirements and where necessary, advise you about the most tax-efficient way of protecting your estate.
