What We Do
We usually spend around 1 hour at an initial appointment, either in a meeting, telephone or online video call. We discuss the following issues, which need to be considered whenever a Will is made or updated:
- WHAT ASSETS DO YOU OWN? In other words, this includes property/investments held in your sole name and any interests you own together with others
- What DEBTS DO YOU HAVE? For instance, this helps you focus on what you have available for people to inherit. We check if there are any inheritance tax issues
- WHO DO YOU WANT TO BENEFIT? You need to identify who will benefit from your Will.
- WHAT DO YOU GIVE? For example, this may be a specific gift, such as a home, an item of jewellery or family heirloom, or cash
- WHO DO YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH YOUR ESTATE? This person is called an Executor. In other words, they collect in all assets. Therefore, they also pay all the debts, address tax issues, and ultimately distribute to your chosen beneficiaries
- if you have MINOR CHILDREN, who do you want to look after them? GUARDIANS have the day to day care of the children.
- If you have children or need a form of trust in to your Will, who will want to appoint as your TRUSTEES?
