It is extremely important to make a will if you wish to be in control of what will happen to your estate after you have died and to rest assured that your loved ones are adequately protected. Here at Allsopp & Co we offer expert guidance to ensure that the legal formalities in creating and executing a valid will are adhered to. Will drafting is personal and specific to the wishes of the testator (the person making the will) and may contain statements as to why potential beneficiaries should be excluded so as to anticipate any post-death claim against the estate of the testator. Did you know for instance that if you die intestate (without a will) and leave a wife/husband and children surviving not necessarily will your estate pass in total to your spouse and trusts may be created to protect the long term interests of your children as to a proportion of your capital. Completion of a will will resolve this problem.
We recognise that losing a loved one is extremely difficult and having to deal with their affairs at such an emotional time can be a daunting task. Given the complexity and often lengthy timescale involved in "administering the estate", at Allsopp & Co our sympathetic and understanding staff are at hand to ensure the process runs as smoothly and as professionally as possible. A cup of tea and a friendly smile are always on offer!.
