Wills & Probate
A Will is perhaps one of the most important documents you will ever sign. It tells those you leave behind what you want to happen to your children, your money and your property following your death. Without a will the law dictates what will happen in the event of your death and these rules may not reflect your personal wishes.
Nowadays every family is different and many do not fit the conventional patterns of old. By having a valid, well drafted and correctly executed will you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your possessions will be distributed to your loved ones in accordance with your wishes. You will also know that you have appointed someone you trust to look after your affairs and that your family will not be burdened by unnecessary worries at a difficult time.
If you are unmarried, your partner will not inherit your estate unless you have a valid will. Even if you are married your spouse may not inherit everything therefore it is vital that you document your instructions in a Will.
Using a professional legal advisor can reduce expensive mistakes that are often made with “home-made” Wills. A professional Solicitor will ensure that your will is legally valid and that your instructions are carried out as you wish.
Obtaining “Probate” is the process where the High Court check the validity of the will. Once they issue the Grant of probate, this then allows for your executor to put your wishes into effect.
