Wills

An expert service to help you ensure the security of future generations.

Estate planning starts with making a Will, an important step that can later help families at a difficult and painful time by avoiding the added stress of dealing with legal complications.

At Weightmans, we understand that each individual's circumstances are unique and pride ourselves on preparing Wills suited to your particular needs.

Our expertise includes:

  • Drafting Wills at all levels of complexity
  • Inheritance tax planning through Wills
  • Protecting the rights of cohabitees
  • Wealth protection and trust creation for different family members and future generations

Our Wills team is well placed to help even where there's already a Will in place. It's vital that Wills are reviewed regularly to take into account changes in both circumstances and the law. It's also important to review Wills after marriage or divorce, or where there are children from a previous relationship.

Inheritance tax planning and Will drafting often go hand in hand, but Wills aren't all about money. They also deal with issues such as funeral arrangements, nominating guardians for young children and the distribution of personal possessions.

So whether you’re writing a new Will, or updating your current one, we'll work with you to tailor our service to best meet your needs.
