Anyone with mental capacity over the age of 18 can make a Will, so why is it that people tend to put off making one?
Talking and thinking about your death is not easy and neither is deciding on what you want to happen after.
Many people want to get their own heads and thoughts straight before they consult a lawyer, but this can leave people unsure about where to even start.
Free Initial Will Consultation
At Monan Gozzett, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your circumstances and answer your questions.
Whether you want to know about the types of gifts you can leave in a Will and how these interact with each other, Inheritance Tax implications of your wishes, or just want someone to explain the complex terminology and process of estate administration after a death.
We may even make suggestions or highlight areas that you have never thought about before.
We can also advise on the effect future events will have on your Will, such as the birth of more children/grandchildren, marriage or divorce.
Just because something hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean that it cannot be considered.
You can then take the time you need to consider our expert advice and we will work with you to create a tailored and robust Will, leaving you confident that your loved ones will be taken care of in the way you wanted.
Will Reviews, Updates and Transfers
If you already have a Will, we are happy to review that with you, to check that it still meets your needs and circumstances.
We do not charge clients who simply wish to transfer Wills, Deeds or other documents from their previous Solicitor to be stored at Monan Gozzett Solicitors.
What Happens If I Never Make a Will?
If you never get around to making a Will, the Intestacy Rules will dictate the distribution of your estate, which generally no longer suit modern family dynamics and do not take your personal wishes into account.
Making a Will is the only way to control what happens to your assets and belongings after you pass away.
So, wherever you are with planning your Will, we at Monan Gozzett can help put you back in control of your and your family’s futures.
