Wills And Probate

Wills And Probate

 Most solicitors and Legal firms talk about themselves, here at Haigh’s Solicitors we are different. We like to talk about you. One of the services we offer is wills & probate.

A will is something that ensures after death, your estate is distributed in accordance with your wishes. A will does not have to be overly complicated or confusing although it is important that you take expert advice to avoid those unexpected issues and to also ensure that you are able to leave your affairs as organised as possible. A will that is well drafted can provide you benefits such as tax savings, but without a will that is well drafted there can be a lot of unnecessary heartache due to there being strict laws dictating what will happen to your estate if you die intestate- this could result in 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 important to you.

Whether you are making a new will or making amendments to an existing will, our expertise and experience means that you will receive a fast and efficient service. 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?
-how will your funeral be paid for?
-what are the tax implications?

What is probate?
Probate is the process where a person’s estate is collected in and distributed following their death, a grant of probate authorises the executors to deal with the affairs of someone who has died. It is therefore vital to ensure that a grant of probate is obtained correctly and as quickly as possible
