Wills and Trusts

A recent survey showed that two-thirds of adults do not have a Will. In the event that you die without a Will the Intestacy Rules apply and these rules therefore determine who will inherit and how much each of your family members will inherit. If you wish to determine how your estate will be dealt with, who it will be dealt with by and how your family are provided for you need to make a Will.

Specialist Wills and Trusts Solicitors

When you make a Will you can name people (called Executors) who will carry out your wishes following your death. It is possible to name Guardians within your Will for any minor children and to make gifts to friends, charities and loved ones. It is also possible to document your funeral wishes within your Will.

When preparing your Will it is important to take advice on both tax and estate planning. This may mean that you incorporate trusts into the Will which will come into effect on your death. These trusts may allow greater flexibility for your family, to provide for vulnerable loved ones or as a tax or estate planning tool. Careful consideration of these factors will be needed and our team can take you through the various options to prepare a Will that suits you and your wishes.

It is important to remember that if you are living with someone that person will not automatically receive anything from your estate, even if you have lived together for many years or have children together. A Will should therefore be put in place to make sure that your partner is provided for in the way you wish.

As your circumstances change, you need to check your Will and make sure it is still suitable and valid – marriage automatically revokes a Will but divorce does not.

Many people worry about making a Will but it is one of the most important things you can do. It need not be expensive but it is worthwhile getting full advice to ensure that your Will accurately records your wishes and provides for your loved ones in the way you wish.

At Rogers & Norton our focus is on delivering a sympathetic, cost effective and tailored solution to your individual needs, whatever your circumstances.
