Wills and Probate

Life is full of twists and turns and none of us can be sure what the future holds. That’s why creating a will makes good sense. As more and more people realise the importance of making a will, it’s no longer seen as something just for the elderly or ill but simply part of sound financial planning for any family or individual.

With a will in place you can relax safe in the knowledge that your wishes will be carried out should anything happen to you. Making a will now also avoids legal problems arising for your family in the future. Often people assume that their money and possessions will automatically pass to their partners or children - but without a will, this isn’t always the case.

At Howlett Clarke, our lawyers have in-depth knowledge in all areas of wills and can help you create a will that’s right for you and your family. Don’t worry if you’ve never discussed wills before - our friendly solicitors will put you at ease, explaining everything clearly with no legal jargon. We offer free initial assessment so you can have an initial chat with no obligation and with our same day response and no hidden costs promises, we make writing a will straightforward. 

So whether you’d like to create a will or would just like to find out more about our will writing service, call us today on 01273 838 756 to have a chat with one of our specialist solicitors.

      Most people these days have some connection to a dementia story. It’s easy to see why when the Alzheimer’s Society states that there are 850,000 people living with some form of dementia in the UK today. 225,000 will develop dementia this year alone- that’s one every three minutes!

      In 1837 the Wills Act was passed which still to this day governs the basic legal principles relating to Wills.

      It is, of course, very common for couples to live together without being married and indeed for children to be born into such relationships. The importance of having a will cannot be underestimated.

      I have recently updated my will… I hadn’t bothered for ages even though the last one I did was seriously out of date and I now had my daughter.
