Partner and Head of Wills & Estate Planning at Andrew & Co Solicitors Helen Newson writes...
Making a Will
Most people die without a Will, which can sometimes lead to difficulties and family disputes. By making a will, you can ensure that your estate will be dealt with by people you trust, and pass to those you wish. In your Will, you can ensure that proper provision is made for those people you need to look after.
For example, you can make financial arrangements for children whilst they are growing up, and appoint guardians for them. If you die without a Will strict rules determine who inherits your estate, who may not be your nearest and dearest. It is therefore important that you make a Will properly tailored to your circumstances. A fixed fee is charged for a straightforward Will. A slightly higher fee is charged for straightforward “mirror” Wills. If a Will is more complicated, we will provide an estimate, to reflect the expertise and additional time involved. Guidance as to our current fees is available on request.
