Making a will can seem like a daunting task, but our expert will writing team is here to help make the process easier by ensuring your wants and wishes are taken care of.
Lupton Fawcett’s trust, wills and estates team has helped many people write their wills and can ensure the process is thorough, easy and as stress free as possible.
Why Should I Make a Will?
There are many reasons why you should make a will; you can decide who will deal with your estate, name who you will leave money or personal items to and minimise your Inheritance Tax (IHT) bill. There are also certain family situations that are important to have a will for, including:
- If you are in a second marriage
- If you are cohabiting
- If you have stepchildren
- If you want to exclude someone from benefiting from your assets
- If you care for a disabled person and want to ensure they are taken care of
In any of the above situations, if you do not have a will, how your estate is dealt with will be decided by UK law, so it is vital you draft a will to ensure your wants and wishes are met. If property is involved, not having a will can mean it goes up for sale.
Once you have drafted a will, it is important to review it every few years or if your circumstances change. We can help you review a will.
