WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN UP TO DATE WILL?
Only 30% of people in this country have made a Will. This is because we do not like thinking about death and we are unaware of the importance of having a professionally drafted Will. Once a person overcomes their fears and makes a Will they find that it is a positive step that gives them great peace of mind. They are reassured that their affairs are in order.
If you die without a Will you die “intestate” meaning the intestacy laws set out which of your family members inherit and the amount. Your spouse will not necessarily inherit all of your estate and if you are unmarried your Partner will not inherit anything.
A legally valid Will, carefully prepared by a qualified expert Solicitor, will ensure that:
you provide for your loved ones in the way you wish;
you choose the Executors who will administer your estate;
you choose the Guardians for your minor children; and
you can take steps to reduce the Inheritance Tax payable.
You can also choose to appoint Lodge Brothers Legal Services as the Executors of your Will. We will ensure that your estate is dealt with promptly and efficiently so that your loved ones do not have the responsibility but do receive their inheritance as quickly as possible.
Fixed fee for a single Will starting from £325 +VAT (£390 inc. VAT).
Fixed fee for mirror Wills starting from £500 +VAT (£600 inc. VAT).
All our fees are fixed and agreed in advance.
Our professional services offer peace of mind to you and your family.
