Will Writing Services from AM Davies, in partnership with Truth Legal
Having a will in place is important for many reasons. A will allows you to choose who should benefit from your money and property after you pass away. It enables you to provide for loved ones, or to make gifts to charities and organisations which mean a lot to you. This control also means you can take full advantage of available tax-saving measures, allowing you to pass as much value on to your chosen heirs as possible.
A will can make a huge difference to the family and friends you leave behind. It can serve as a clear statement of your intentions, helping to avoid confusion or disputes after you are gone.
Wills are particularly crucial if you have young children. If anything should happen to you and your partner, your will lets you arrange for your children’s welfare, nominating guardians to take care of them. Without this clear direction, there could be battles over guardianship amongst your family – at a time which will already be distressing.
Making a will with A M Davies Solicitors
A M Davies Solicitors have helped many people make their wills and plan for the future of their families. We recognise that making a will is not just a process to be followed, it requires empathy, and appreciation of what is important to you. In this way, we can provide an expertly drafted will to give legal effect to match your exact wishes.
If you would like advice about making a will, please contact Jeremy at A M Davies Solicitors.
What happens if you die without a will?
If you die without a will, all of your money and property passes according to legal directives known as the ‘intestacy rules’. These rules can easily lead to unwanted effects; for example, the people you actually wanted to receive your assets may end up with nothing at all.
Importance of using a professional
There is no substitute for using a professionally drafted will. It is possible to make a legal will yourself, but the difficulty comes in knowing whether it will give full and valid effect to your intentions.
The nature of wills means that it is often too late to fix problems when they are discovered, as they may only come to light after the person who made the will has died. This makes it all the more essential to have your will made correctly in the first place.
