Wills and Probate

There are many Mistakes people make when drawing up a Will when doing it on-line or with an unqualified company.

This popular game in Wills is generally unwittingly played by people with no children, or unmarried couples, and is most often found in home-made Wills. One of the mistakes is that each of the couple leaves everything to their spouse or partner on first death, and the Will then goes on to say that if that spouse or partner has predeceased them, then it all goes to the family of the person making the Will. The result is that the family of the person who dies first ends up with nothing, and everything goes to the family of the second to die.

If you want to get it right, come and have a chat, as we specalise in providing Wills and probate advice to clients in Surrey. It is very important that your property and possessions are left to the person of your choice. If not, the above scenario or worse could play out and the Government may benefit at the expense of your loved ones.  

We will take your instructions to ensure that the right people are taken care of, and where appropriate, advise on minimising the burden of inheritance tax.
