Thinking or talking about your death is not easy; neither is deciding how your estate will be divided afterwards.
Anyone with mental capacity over the age of 18 can make a Will, but many people want to get their thoughts straight before they consult a lawyer.
It can be a lot easier to do so with professional advice and guidance at the outset.
Why Write A Will?
The Intestacy Rules dictate the distribution of your estate if you do not make a Will.
We have created a handy Intestacy Tool to help you calculate what would happen in your individual circumstances if you died intestate.
These rules 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.
Free Initial Consultations
At Monan Gozzett Solicitors, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your circumstances and answer your questions about Wills.
You might want to know about the types of gifts you can leave in a Will and how they interact with each other, the Inheritance Tax implications of your wishes, or simply an explanation of the terminology and contents of a Will.
We may make suggestions or highlight areas that you have not thought about.
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 has not happened yet, does not mean that it cannot be considered.
You can then take the time you need to consider our expert advice before we 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.
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.
The free initial consultation can be face-to-face, a video call, or a telephone call.
