Recent research tells us that around 70% of UK adults don’t bother making a Will because they believe everything they have will go directly to their partner or children. But is this the case? NO.
If you die without making a Will, your estate will be distributed under the Law of Intestacy. This can sometimes leave your children without any of your estate. The law does not recognise common-law partners so if you are unmarried, your partner may not inherit anything and could be forced out of the home you have shared together. If you have children under 18, the courts could decide who looks after them and they could be placed into care in the meantime. The law will dictate who administers your estate and they might not be the people you trust the most.
All of this is completely unnecessary, as making a will is much simpler and more affordable than you might think. Our fees start from as little as £75 per person and our friendly, experienced Paralegals guide you through the short process to ensure that your wishes are recorded exactly as you would like them. This fee can be reduced by up to 50% if taken with one of our Estate Protection packages. We visit you in the comfort of your own home and offer unbiased, confidential advice to complete matters quickly and simply.
