Estate Planning Service
Making sure your wishes are met
Did you know that over half of UK adults aged 35 and over do not have a Will in place. Don't be one of them!

None of us like to think about such things, but as the old saying goes "there's only two certainties in life, death and taxes" and so it makes sense to cover both eventualities by making sure you have a plan in place.
Many people assume that when they die, their money and belongings (their Estate) will just pass to their family - but this often isn't the case. In some cases, the Government may decide who benefits from the estate. By spending a little time now considering your options, you can ensure that your wishes are met.
Some of the benefits...
As well as making sure your original intended recipients receive what you want them to, pre-planning of probate can also save you time and money at a later date. Your Estate may be liable for Inheritance Tax (IHT), but by planning now, you could avoid some of this liability and make sure the maximum goes to your beneficiaries.
