My very sincere thanks to Louise for her professional help to me when writing my Will.

Mr J

Sadly we lost one of our dear friends a couple of months ago and he had not written a will […] I met with Louise from Oliver & Co who was fantastic. I thought writing a will would be easy but I really didn’t understand “the what ifs” and what we needed to take into consideration. Louise was really good and talked me through every step and every eventuality. Louise was also very patient as I continually changed my mind.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank […] Louise for her patient and professional service.

Why make a will?

Planning for the future is very important, and unfortunately, a lot of people leave it too late. If you die without making a will it could create difficulties for your family and your estate could pass to people who you did not want to inherit. Further to this:

  • The government will decide who inherits your money, property, and possessions. If you are married all of the money may go entirely to your spouse rather than your children, other relatives or friends. This applies even if you are separated from your spouse.
  • If you are not married, your partner will not get any money. 
  • You cannot select guardians for your minor children, and who the Government chooses may not be the person you would have liked.
  • Your estate may have to pay more inheritance tax.
  • Your minor beneficiaries will inherit at 18. Without a Will you cannot increase this to 21 or 25.
  • You cannot donate any money to charity.
  • Your loved ones may not be aware of your funeral wishes.

The process involved in making a will is not necessarily complex but it does need to be expertly and thoroughly handled. Our aim is to explain the process simply and clearly and to bring to your attention any issues regarding your circumstances.

You should review your will regularly

Wills should be reviewed at least every 5 years, to ensure that they reflect your up-to-date wishes. This is particularly the case if there has been a change in the law or your relationship/personal circumstances have changed.

If you would like one of our expert team to review your will, please contact us for a free, no-obligation initial consultation.
