Making a New Will?- Don’t Try This At Home!!

A home cooked family roast dinner is always best! In fact, there are a lot of things that are always best at home. Unfortunately, this is not the case when it comes to making your Will so don’t try this at home and instruct a solicitor!

Your Will informs your family and friends how to distribute your belongings; it also tells them what mattered to you. If a homemade Will is  invalid, any wishes or vision that you had for the future may not take effect. If your homemade Will is invalid and you made no earlier Will, then your estate is distributed in accordance with the Intestacy Rules. This could potentially benefit those you had specifically not wanted it to. Similarly, any earlier valid Will that you had attempted to replace could take precedent if your current homemade Will was invalid. 

In order to ensure the validity of a Will, you must sign and witness your Will correctly. Failure to do so, will result in an invalid Will. Unfortunately, these are two of the most common reasons why Wills made at home are invalid.

Instructing a solicitor to prepare your Will ensures the validity of your Will. Your solicitor may also advice on you on matters that you had not even considered, such as inheritance tax, trusts, guardians for any children, or potential claims against your estate. 

For most people, the most important document ever signed by them is their Will. Therefore, why not ensure that it is a valid, legal document and instruct a solicitor? Let’s keep home the place of great food!

With our Wills starting from £100 + vat, it is great value for money. Contact our specialist solicitor, Charlotte, to arrange an appointment to discuss your Will on 01606 872200 now!
