The Importance of Safeguarding your Will
You only have one valid will.

If your Will is stolen or cannot be found the rules of intestacy will apply.
We offer optional lifetime Will Storage which is both safe and secure from theft, flood and fire.
Have you made plans to pay for your funeral?
It can be a worrying time for friends or family if your funeral costs need to be paid by them, if estate funds cannot be accessed quickly.
A funeral plan may be the kindest option for all concerned; making a difficult time just a little easier to manage.
We are proud to be agents for Golden Leaves Funeral Plans.

Why have a will?
It’s a sensitive matter talking about final wishes and deciding who ought to receive a gift or inheritance.
Yet, by recording your wishes in a will you can protect your estate by leaving it to those you choose.
A Will is one of the most important documents you can possess.
Do you have a furry friend?
Pets are an incredibly important part of the family, but their future welfare is often forgotten. We often assume that our friends or relatives will care for our pets and give them a loving home. In reality we must remember that taking on a pet is a big commitment.
Veterinary costs, vaccinations, insurance and food may be an unwelcome expense for the family inheriting your pet. You can include pet welfare wishes in your will and leave a legacy to cover ongoing costs. You can also leave a legacy to a pet charity to support their work.
We can discuss various options with you. Call us free on 08000 499 202.
Did you know?
When you get married any existing will is no longer valid unless it included a clause making clear your intention to marry.
If you have children from a previous relationship it is important your wishes and gifts are set out clearly, so those you love aren’t forgotten.
If you do not have a valid will any legacy will be distributed according to intestacy rules.
Are you a home owner?
If you own a property jointly the property will automatically transfer to the other joint owner on your death. Sometimes this may not be the best option, perhaps if you and your spouse have children from former relationships.
We can draft your will so that you leave your share of your property to children while allowing your spouse to remain in the property for the rest of their lifetime. This may also protect the property from being sold off by the council for care home fees if the last remaining spouse needs to go into care or a home.
To do this we can change your jointly owned property to Tenants in Common and add a Protective Property Trust to your will.
Who will administer your estate?
It is usual to list family or close friends as Executors and Trustees to administer your estate. Yet, great responsibly comes with the role so consider carefully who to ask.
Firstly check that those chosen would have enough time to carry out administrative tasks until the estate is fully settled. Consider if they well organised and reliable.
Will they be able to cope in a time of grief?
Sometimes selecting a professional estate-administration company such as Kings Court Trust may be a good alternative, relieving stress at a difficult time.
Do you have young children…
Have you considered who would-become the guardian of your children if you were unable to care for them?
Many parents have an informal verbal arrangement ‘just in case’, but haven’t got a valid will formalising their wishes.
Details about how you would like your children to be raised (including religious beliefs) can be incorporated into your will so your Guardian is fully aware of your wishes.
Focus on Local Charities
If the net value of your estate is likely to exceed the Inheritance Tax Threshold current legislation says your Inheritance Tax bill can be reduced by leaving a charitable gift of a minimum of 10%. However, by doing so the residuary estate is likely be lower as a result and rules may change in future years.
If you are single, with no family or friends to leave your estate you may think its not worthwhile having a will. If you die without a will, your estate will be distributed under the rules of Intestacy. This means that a distant relative that you have never met may be entitled to your estate. If you would rather be in control of who is entitled to your estate why not consider leaving your estate to Charity.
We are currently compiling a list of local Charities for your consideration.
