Why do I need a will?

If you die without making a will, your assets may be distributed in accordance with the law rather than your wishes. Whether your instructions are simple or complex, our will and probate solicitors in London and Newbury can make sure that your will is right for you and your beneficiaries. 

Without a will and careful inheritance planning:

  • Your family do not automatically inherit
  • Guardianship of children under 18 may be unclear
  • Your home may be sold without your consent and the proceeds used for care home fees
  • Your loved ones could be liable for a 40% tax bill
  • A gift for a child, friend or charity may not reach them

Expert Trust Planning

Trusts are a highly effective way to pass wealth onto the next generation. They can also provide valuable tax relief. Our people really understand how to get the best out of every type of trust on offer. Whether you want to protect your assets for your future or for someone else, we can provide all the guidance you need.
