Will writing service
Having a will written is one of the first things that any adult should do if they are serious about their financial future. Dying without a will could mean that money is given to people other than the deceased would have wished.
This is known as dying “intestate” and the solicitor is forced to use a prescriptive set of rules to decide who receives the estate; these rules are often wholly inappropriate as they don’t reflect the wishes of the deceased person. If a married couple died together without a will, their children could automatically go into state care, no matter who is left to care for the children.
Older clients are often concerned about having to sell the family home to fund long-term care. However, with careful and early planning, people's homes can be largely protected from the Government means-test calculations in a perfectly legal fashion.
Marcos Kallou, our will writing specialist, is an expert in the field and he has many years’ experience. Whatever situations are faced by our clients he is able to help. He can offer advice to unmarried couples, couples with young children, couples with disabled children, those worried about re-marriage and those who want to protect assets from long term care costs. He is also able to advise on and prepare the new Lasting Powers of Attorney.
If you do not currently have a Will or your Will is more than 6 years old we would be happy to get Marcos to speak with you.
