Last will and testament

What is a will?

It's estimated that 67% of Adults don’t have a valid will. Many people associate the need for a will with being either wealthy or elderly.

Making a will provides the peace of mind that any dependents including minors are adequately provided for. Funeral wishes, TAX planning, fair distribution of assets, gifts to charities - all are covered by a professionally drafted will.

Trusts can ring fence assets; make provisions for Children, protect the family home from potential care home costs. Professional will writers can advise the best trusts to cover individual circumstances. Find out more about trusts.
