Making a Will is all about exercising choice.
Quite simply, it enables you to choose:
- who will benefit from your estate on death
- who to appoint as Guardians of your children (if they are minors)
- who to appoint as Executors to put your affairs in order.
The end result is a document which sets out your wishes on death. However, there is much more to it than this. At its heart, the process of writing a Will provides an opportunity for you to review your circumstances and affairs. This enables you to plan for now and the future.
Our dedicated team are here to help guide you through the process to ensure you prepare the right Will for you.
