Leicestershire Will Writing Specialists
Will Writing service
Making a will is one of those bits of life admin that a lot of us put off. It’s easy to understand why. None of us want to think about a time when we’re not here. You might have some tough decisions to make. You might think you don’t need to bother with a will as it’s all going to one person anyway. Here are 5 reasons why making a will is still important and how we’ll support you through the process.
It reduces stress for your loved ones
Admin is stressful at the best of times. It’s even worse when you’re grieving for someone you love. There will always be a bit of paperwork, but making a will gives your loved ones fewer forms to sign and saves them the hassle of the intestacy procedure. Writing a will makes everything simpler.
You own more than you think
You might think that you haven’t got much to leave, but you’d be surprised. When you come to us to make a will we’ll ask you about your assets, including your house, pension and bank accounts. We’ll make sure you don’t forget about those personal sentimental items too. Gathering everything together helps you to appreciate how much you have and gets all your important paperwork in one place.
You can protect your family financially
If you die without a will, the intestacy rules will decide who inherits and how much. Your spouse or civil partner takes priority; sometimes that means there’s nothing left over for your children. The rules only consider blood relatives, so people you love and want to look after could be left with nothing.
Are your children under 18?
It’s a horrible thought, but making a will gives you a say in what happens to your children when you’re gone. Your will can set out who will look after them if anything happens to you. Without that, the decision could be in the hands of the Court. Doesn’t bear thinking about, does it?
our partner doesn’t automatically inherit
If you and your partner live together but aren’t married or in a civil partnership, they won’t inherit unless they’re in your will. If your family situation is complicated, writing a will makes your wishes clear and lets you look after the people you care about. We’ll help you to think about your options and make the right choices for you.
Are you ready to write your will? Whatever your situation, we’ll guide you through making a will that protects you and your family.
