Will Drafting

Will Drafting Services from A.A. Holmes Solicitors

Your Will sets out what will happen to your money, possessions and property on your death.

Why we recommend making a Will through our firm:-

  • You choose who administers your affairs when you die
  • You choose who benefits from your estate
  • You choose legal guardians to care for your young children
  • You get peace of mind that your Will has been drafted proficiently and meets all necessary legal requirements
  • We can advise you on ways to reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that may be payable when you die
Will Drafting
If you don’t leave a Will you will die INTESTATE

If this happens your estate and property will be distributed under a set of legal (statutory) rules and will not necessarily pass to the people you would want it to or indeed the people you would expect it to pass to. These rules are complex, and can change depending on your family circumstances at the time of your death.
