WILLS (click here)
Why bother making one?

Whilst it is never a nice prospect to deal with the eventuality of your death- preparation is everything and peace of mind is priceless. Making a Will ensures that your loved ones are not just provided for financially, but it can also make the administration of your estate (everything you owned) easier than if you are intestate (died without a Will). Those living with their partner but not married may face some serious hardship according to the rules of intestacy. Many people mistakenly believe that if you are married, then everything passes to the spouse easily- only to face difficulties with banks and building societies, asking for probate documentation in order to do so. Although this is required with or without a Will in many circumstances; financial affairs and probate procedures can be complex and time consuming, having a valid Will gives some certainty to your estate and your family who are left grieving.

Don’t worry- your Will can be changed at any time, as your life circumstances will also change over time; and it’s probably not as costly as you first thought.

Joanne and Chris can give specialist advice on the best way of giving effect to your wishes, as well as efficient tax planning/saving which could be significant to you and your personal circumstances. Care Home fees also weigh heavily on the mind, therefore we also have specialist advice on planning for this. We will take your detailed instructions as per your wishes, with advice in mind and provide you with a draft. Once you are happy with a final draft, we will arrange a time convenient to you, to have it signed and witnessed. We will then store the original Will for you in our secure Wills safe at no charge. Spouses also receive a discount for ‘mirror Wills’ in which both spouses have identical Wills.

You can then relax in the knowledge that your Will is valid and has been prepared for you by fully qualified and experienced lawyers, not simply a brand offering generic legal services by non-qualified people.

I recently required the services of a solicitor. A friend of mine recommended that I contact Ms Bury who comes to your home to discuss your requirements. As my wife and I are pensioners, we found this to be an excellent service and would certainly recommend Ms Bury to anyone requiring a solicitor.
