Why prepare a Will?

A Will allows you to make decisions about who administers your Estate and who will benefit from it.  It provides certainty, protects the people who are important to you and gives you the peace of mind in knowing exactly how your money, property and possessions will be dealt with after your death. Signing a new Will is the best first step to plan for your future.

Why use a solicitor?

Although you can make a Will yourself, or even use a Will writing service, by doing so you are leaving yourself open to a number of common pitfalls. In the worst-case scenario, your Will may even be deemed invalid. Wills must be written, signed and witnessed appropriately. Further, using just one incorrect word may cause the contents of your Will to be disputed.  

Unqualified Will writers do not always understand the intricacies involved in Will writing or Inheritance Tax advice, especially if your Estate is more complex. For your peace of mind it is advised that you talk to and have your Will drafted by an experienced solicitor, like those at Anderson Rowntree. Contact us today to get started.

Save money – reduce Inheritance Tax

A carefully constructed Will can also save Inheritance Tax. If you die without a Will then your Estate will be distributed according to Intestacy Rules. This could mean that certain assets will be liable for Inheritance Tax that could otherwise be avoided, leaving your loved ones with less.

If you wish to reduce Inheritance Tax, then making a Will is imperative. Our Private Client lawyers can also help you with Trust administration if you wish to set up a Trust which can be another effective method for reducing Inheritance Tax. 

Our Private Client lawyers in West Sussex are highly experienced in all areas of Will drafting. We have an experienced team who can advise you in this regard, along with the need for a Lasting Power of Attorney. Do not leave it for another day, act now and call us to make an appointment.
