Under English law, we have testimonial freedom to leave our estates to whomever we please. However in recent years contesting a will has become the norm, highlighting the need for people to take proper advice and have their wills drafted professionally.
If you do not have a will the Rules of Intestacy apply to your estate and this means that those you care about may not benefit at all. All these potentially heartbreaking issues can be avoided by drafting a legally binding will.
In times where more and more people embark on second or third relationships with children involved, having a carefully considered will is particularly important. Taking the time to make a will and generally considering your estate planning is a small price to pay for peace of mind and can also mitigate inheritance tax.
We offer a highly affordable professional will service and atotally free will service for anyone who is terminally ill or whose income is low or non-existent.
