Everyone should make a will. It is the only way to ensure that in the event of your death, your property is dealt with and your loved ones are provided for exactly as you would want. There are DIY options available, and companies claiming to specialise in writing wills, however, we strongly recommend seeking professional help from a solicitor for your will. Our private client team provide a range of services including wills and probate matters.
How a will is made
The formalities of making a will are covered by the Wills Act 1837, and any mistake or oversight – such as incorrect wording, or failing to follow precise procedures – can invalidate a will causing difficulties after your death.
However, a properly drawn up will means that property will be left in accordance with your wishes. At Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, our expert team has drawn up thousands of wills over the years. Our quick, easy service will walk you through every step of the process, and give you a document that you can depend on.
We understand the complexities of drafting a will to make sure your wishes are carried out as closely as possible and can often recommend ways of achieving what you want that you may not have considered.
Our team regularly uses both bare and discretionary trusts within wills to help provide for minor and disabled beneficiaries. We have drafted a large number of wills that include life interest property trusts to assist in cases of second marriages, to ensure that the children of the first marriage are provided for while protecting the security of the surviving spouse.
The whole point of a will is to give you peace of mind that your affairs are in order should the worst happen. By relying on the specialist team at Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice to properly draw up your will, that peace of mind is yours.
