Nobody wants to think about death but, unfortunately, we can’t predict what the future holds – which is why creating a will is a sensible decision.
Upon the death of a relative, administering their estate is an important step to undertake. In some circumstances, this is more difficult because there is no will or it is somehow invalid. WLS Solicitors can guide you through what the right steps are.
Inheritance and tax planning
By planning ahead, you’ll be afforded a clear idea of who will benefit from your estate.
Your assets will be subject to inheritance tax if they exceed the threshold of £325,000, so planning for this allows you to consider any reliefs and exemptions you might benefit from.
Making a will
A recent study by the Legal Services Board showed a quarter of wills to be either invalid, or not reflective of a person’s wishes. These statistics alone highlight the importance of getting an expert to help you to put your will together.
WLS Solicitors provides a variety of probate services, including:
Will and inheritance disputes
The terms of a Will can cause distress. If there isn’t one, this is difficult too. WLS Solicitors can advise on any matter where a will or inheritance is in dispute.
