Will writing

If you die intestate (in other words without a will) you risk leaving behind a trail of stress, costs and even family feuds. By making a will you decide what happens to your property and possessions after your death. Although you don’t have to make one by law, it is the best way to make sure your estate is passed on exactly as you wish. If you die without one, your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes.

Inheritance Tax (IHT) is now a big worry for most of us. Currently this tax, at an eye-watering rate of 40%, is payable on the value of your estate over £325,000. So even if you don’t consider yourself wealthy, the value of your property alone is likely to be enough to push you into the taxable bracket. We can show you how to minimise your exposure to IHT as part of your will planning. Just one easy-to-implement recommendation can save £120,000 in tax – money that can then go to your loved ones.
