There are many practical reasons to write a Will, often motivated by specific events such as buying a new house, the birth of a child or the loss of a relative.

A Will is important because it ensures that your estate is passed on to your loved ones exactly as you wish. Few realise that if you die without making a Will, your assets may be distributed according to the law, rather than your own wishes.

Whether you need a standard Will or a more complex solution, perhaps involving financial planning or Trusts, Lifetime Legal can help.

After a few straightforward questions over the phone, we’ll arrange the correct Will for your circumstances to be drafted by experts. If your needs are more complex, we will send you a written recommendation, so either way, you’ll receive expert estate planning advice.

Tips for planning ahead

When you’re writing a Will it is advisable to consider arranging a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), so that you can specify who will make decisions about your affairs, for example in the event of your ill health.

It may be that your Will requirements are more diverse and complicated. For example, you might want to leave gifts and legacies or make certain financial arrangements such as planning for Inheritance Tax or setting up a Trust to generate an on-going income for your family.

Fair prices, peace of mind

Arranging a more complex estate is not always a predictable process, especially if it involves a number of financial solutions and liaising with third parties. Our specialist Will writers will talk you through what are the best options available to achieve your wishes and what services you may need in order to achieve this.
