Whilst making a Will may be considered a daunting exercise and something that can be left until later in life, preparing this legal document now will ensure that your property and possessions pass to those people who you love and wish to benefit and that your children are cared for and protected appropriately.
We can provide advice on:
- • The appointment of Executors
- • The appointment of guardians for minor children
- • The making of cash and specific property legacies
- • The distribution of the remainder of your estate
- • Setting up a trust within the Will
- • Providing essential administrative provision for trusts created in the Will
- • Tax efficient Wills for spouses and civil partners
- • Wills with children as beneficiaries and other vulnerable beneficiaries
- • ‘Living Wills’
- • Court approved Wills for those lacking capacity to make a Will
We can also help plan suitable Wills for those in second marriages with more than one family to consider, and for civil partners or unmarried couples who own property jointly, or who run a business which cannot be split or sold.
Often we will advise you to incorporate trusts into your Will in order to protect children or other vulnerable members of your family, and in order to preserve your property, possessions and business.
Once your Will is signed and made legal and effective, Burlingtons offers a free storage facility to ensure your Will’s safekeeping.
