Wills & succession planning

Making a will is vitally important and yet so many people do not get round to it or keep it up to date.

It is often assumed that if you do not make a will your possessions are automatically left to your loved ones in their entirety. This is incorrect.

By making a will, you ensure your wishes are followed, avoid paying too much tax and prevent complications in relation to your estate. Our wills and succession planning team will make the process as easy as possible.

Making a will is the ideal time to review your personal affairs to ensure you have arranged them correctly for the future. For example, to minimise inheritance tax, cater for unusual family circumstances and make sure you have considered pension death benefits.

  • What is a will?

    A will is a legal document which describes who will receive your assets after your death and would normally cover bank accounts, investments, your home and personal possessions as well as setting out your funeral wishes. It also enables you to appoint guardians to look after young children

  • Mirror wills

    A mirror will is the term used to describe wills made by spouses or partners in which the terms of each will reflect the other i.e. they mirror one another. For example, a married couple who wish to leave everything to each other and then on the death of the survivor to their children are said to make mirror wills.
