At the last count, a staggering 75% of people die without having made plans for the future of their property or possessions. It’s a mistake to think that what you leave behind will automatically pass on to your next of kin because, unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
Whatever the size of your estate, you should always leave a clear and legally binding statement of your wishes and making a Will is the only way of guaranteeing this. It is therefore the most important document that you will ever sign because, leaving this world without a valid Will is going to present problems for your family and loved ones at a very difficult time.
In preparing a Will you need to discuss with a specialist lawyer the best way of ensuring that your intentions for your property, possessions and investments will be carried out should the worst happen to you. You will also need advice on:
- Appointing executors and trustees to deal with your assets.
- What provisions you need to consider for your children.
- The best structure for your Will so as to minimise the amount of Inheritance
- Tax that will be payable on your estate.
- What to do if you hold joint property or have a pension plan that pays death in service benefits.
Whereas you may have family and close friends with the time and expertise to carry out the functions of an executor, many people do not. Coles Miller are happy to accept appointments as executors either as a firm, as individuals within the firm, or jointly with your family.
We are currently offering our clients a preferential rate of just £90 + VAT for a single Will or £150 + VAT for mirror Wills for a couple.
