• Will Writting Service

 

At a traumatic time such as the death of a loved one it is a comfort to all if a will is in place.  A Will ensures that, after death, your estate (cash, property, possessions) are distributed in accordance with your wishes. A Will does not have to be too complicated or confusing, although it is important that you take expert advice from your solicitor. This avoids any unexpected issues and ensures that you leave your affairs as organised as possible. A well drafted Will can provide benefits such as tax savings but, without one, there can be a lot of unnecessary heartache as there are strict laws dictating what will happen to your estate if you die intestate –(without a Will),  your partner could be forced to sell your home or it could pass into the hands of distant relatives instead of the people who are close and important to you.

Our Service

Whether you’re thinking about making a new Will or making amendments to your existing Will, our experienced, thorough solicitors ensure that you will receive a fast and efficient service.  Throughout the process we will make sure that you fully understand the implications of your decisions, such as:

 

·         Who will look after your children?

·         Who will deal with the administration of your estate?

·         Who will inherit your savings?

·         Who will receive personal possessions such as jewellery and family heirlooms?

·         How your estate is divided?

  • Haighs Solicitors Will Services

Making A Will
At Haighs solicitors we can guide you through the will making ensuring your wishes are clearly stated in the event of your death. A will is an essential document which can alleviate unnecessary heartache and ensures your possessions are directed to those people that are important to you, not distant relatives. Leaving your affairs well organised with an up to date will can avoid unexpected issues for your family and friends and even if drafted well could provide tax savings.
In extreme circumstances if you die intestate (without a will) your partner could have to sell the house or have it pass to your relatives. For this reason, it is essential to have an up to date will. We can not only draft new wills but amend old ones too to more accurately reflect your new circumstances.
Our services include:

  1. Who will look after your children?
  2. Who will deal with the administration of your estate?
  3. Who will inherit your savings?
  4. Who will receive personal possessions such as jewellery and family heirlooms?
  5. How your estate is divided?
  6. How will your funeral be paid for?
