1 in 4 Wills in a recent study by the Legal Services Board fail their official assessment, meaning they were either completely invalid or didn’t properly reflect what the person wanted to happen. Getting the right person to prepare you Will is vital.
At QualitySolicitors Burton & Co we understand that every person is different which is why all of our Wills are individually prepared by a Solicitor from our Wills and Probate Department. This gives you the peace of mind that your Will is valid and that your assets go to who you want them to go to.
If you have assets (including property) over the Inheritance Tax threshold (currently £325,000) you may benefit from more detailed advice on how to minimise the tax paid through your will. If you own a business this may also be a more suitable option for you.
Protect property from passing outside the family due to divorce, re-marriage or bankruptcy.
Give a gift so that the person receiving it does not lose means tested benefits.
Our lawyers are experts in structuring your will to maximise the assets left to your friends and family, potentially saving you many thousands of pounds.
