Making a will is vitally important. It allows you to have control over who gets the things you leave behind and minimises the risk of complex problems that can arise after death. If you die intestate (without a will), your belongings will be distributed according to specific and complicated legal rules, not according to your wishes.
Writing a Will
A will is a legal document that sets out how a person’s estate, including their home is to be distributed after they die. If you own any property, you can specify who is to own it, or if you have young children, you can name someone to be a guardian over them. In some instances, it may also be possible to reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable on a deceased’s assets.
A will must be thoughtfully drafted to make sure it fulfils your full intentions and covers all your assets, including personal items like jewellery & family heirlooms as well as your bank accounts and other property.
At Williamson & Henry we can help you put your wishes in writing so you can be assured that your estate will be distributed the way you want.
