Whilst it is not a subject people often want to think about, to ensure that your wishes are met upon your death it is important that you make a Will.
Your Will should outline your wishes with regard to your assets, your funeral arrangements and also the future care of any minor children you may have.
Even if you have already made a Will it is important that you review this from time to time to ensure that it continues to meet your requirements.
At Latham & Co we are here to advise you of your options and to help you make informed decisions based upon such advice.
There are many considerations when deciding what to incorporate into your Will. At Latham & Co we can advise upon:-
- The appointment of executors and trustees
- The appointment of testamentary guardians
- Tax implications
- Care fees
- Potential claims against your estate and the avoidance of the same
- The circumstances where a Will Trust may be appropriate
- Funeral wishes
There are essential formalities to be followed in signing a Will which could invalidate the document if not executed correctly.
At Latham & Co we offer a fixed fee for a straightforward Will but we can provide a quote for more complex Wills after identifying your specific requirements.
