Why Make a Will?


Common sense tells us that we need a Will, but why is it so important?

'Do Not' die intestate.

Making a Will is the only way you can be sure what will happen to your property and possessions after your death.

If you have a wife or husband, especially young children or dependents, it is the best way of making absolutely sure they are provided for. An up to date Will, making your intentions clear makes it much easier for your Executors to administer your estate.

If you die without making a Will – known as ‘Intestate’ – you have no control over who inherits your estate, in turn the Law will decide the outcome.

We provide basic wills, mirror wills, wills including trust work,
