Get peace of mind knowing that you have a professionally drafted Will which will ensure your estate is dealt with in accordance with your wishes.

From the 24th-28th September 2018 we will prepare a simple Will at a reduced price of 75.00* plus VAT at our Ipswich branch. This is more than 50% off our normal fee!

Why do I need a Will?

  • You can control who benefits from your estate.
  • You choose who is responsible for administering your estate.
  • You can include specific gifts e.g. a gift to charity, a gift of money or jewellery to friends or relatives.
  • You can appoint guardians for your minor children.
  • A Will makes things much easier for those left behind as there will be clear instructions as to what is to happen to your estate. The administration is more straightforward and can often be dealt with more efficiently when there is a Will.
  • There will be clear instructions as to your wishes which may lower the risk of a claim against your estate.

If you don’t have a Will the Intestacy Provisions apply. They dictate how your estate will be divided and the proportion in which different parties inherit. The following issues can arise:

  • Your spouse may not automatically receive 100% of your estate.
  • Unmarried partners will not receive a share of your estate.
  • Children may not inherit.
  • If you do not have any surviving relatives your estate will pass to the state.
  • Issues may arise where there has been a second marriage.
  • The prescribed manner of the rules often fails to account for the circumstances of the parties involved resulting in inadequate provision for family members.
