Completing and signing a Will in the correct way allows you to decide who should benefit from your Estate.

If you die without a Will, also known as dying intestate, your Estate will be distributed in accordance with a set of statutory rules. This means that your assets may not be distributed as you would like, allowing someone who you don’t want to benefit to receive something from your Estate.

This is where our will solicitors in Hampshire can help.

Why make a Will?

You will be able to identify who you wish to look after your Estate following your death. You can then name people that you trust, rather than those who would be entitled to do so if you died intestate.

The main purpose of your Will is to clearly set out who should benefit from your Estate. You will have full control of that. So much so, you can decide in what proportions they should inherit it. If you are leaving someone out of your Will, we can advise you on potential claims against your Estate and matters you need to consider to protect it.

After making your Will, we recommend that you review your it with us every 3 to 5 years. This ensures that it still reflects your wishes and that you are aware of any changes in the law in relation to Inheritance Tax.

Preparing a Will is made easy with our Hampshire based team

Preparing a Will does not need to be complicated and time-consuming. Our Private Client team tailors their advice to your needs and will explain complex matters in a friendly and straightforward manner.

It is important that the correct procedure is followed to avoid the chance of the Will being invalid. There has been a rise in court actions with regard to the validity of Wills, which shows the importance of utilising professional legal advice to ensure this doesn’t happen to yours.

What we’ll discuss

We’ll look at various issues, including the impact of Inheritance Tax, the cost of care fees, property or assets held outside the jurisdiction of England and Wales and advise you to take advice from other professionals; Accountants, Financial Advisers or Lawyers in the country where assets are held, if it appears appropriate.
