Wills solicitors

Life is full of twists and turns. We can’t predict the future, but we can plan for it. That’s why writing a Will makes good sense. Without a Will, you leave your estate in the hands of uncertainty.

Writing a Will is no longer just for the elderly – it’s a crucial part of financial planning. At Talbots Law, we know that these matters can be hard to deal with. However, with a personable approach and a professional attitude, we’ll help you safeguard your assets and make sure your legacy lasts. 

Writing a will may not be something you’ve thought about.

Most people don’t think about Will writing until late into their senior years. Some don’t think about it at all.  It’s often assumed that with or without a Will, your assets will pass to your children, your spouse or whoever your nearest and dearest happens to be. If this were the case, our Wills solicitors would have a lot of free time on their hands. However, if you die without putting one in place, your assets will be divided however the judge sees fit.

What should my Will contain?

Your will is paramount in having control over the division of your assets even after you’re gone. It should therefore include as much information as possible regarding who will inherit and how much they are to receive. This includes any financial assets you have: property, possessions and shares. The key is to be as specific as possible. As well as this, you’ll need to decide who you want to name as the executor of your Will. This person will be responsible for ensuring your wishes are carried out accordingly. If you have any requests for the funeral proceedings, here is where you would state them.

Can I change my Will?

Whether it’s a birth, death, marriage or significant change to your financial situation, you should consider updating your Will in accordance. To make any changes, simply get in touch and we’ll arrange a meeting. One option is to write a new Will from scratch if the event affects the entire Will or is significantly complicated. On the other hand, we can make an alteration to the existing Will, known as a codicil. This will be signed and witnessed in the same way as your original Will.

It’s never too early to write a Will. Speak to a Wills solicitor at Talbots Law on 0800 118 1500 to safeguard your financial assets and protect your possessions.
