Bastows Will Writing Services

At Bastows we can provide professional will writing services to help your loved ones to manage the administration of your estate by becoming Executors.

None of us want to think about passing on but if we only stopped for a moment to consider how in the absence of a Will our loved ones might be affected we would probably think twice and of course we will get around to doing it one day…

Wills are not just for the rich and famous. It is important for anyone who has property, other assets, personal items or children to consider making a Will.

If you do not have a Will you may not know how certain events can change your position such as if you marry or enter into a civil partnership or get divorced or if you have children or grandchildren or if there is the death of a close family member or how significant changes to your finances can alter your position. You should also consider reviewing an existing Will as over the course of our lives our circumstances invariably change.

A Will ensures that your estate is dealt with in accordance with your wishes and not someone else’s. If you die without making a Will you would have died intestate which means that the State, not your family or friends, will decide how your estate is dealt with. If you do not make your wishes clear there could be tax implications which, with careful planning, could be avoided. It would be a difficult enough time for your loved ones. You would not wish for them to go through more upset.

You may not be aware of how creative you can be when making provision for potential beneficiaries but with appropriate legal advice you might be surprised at what is possible. You may wish to think about what might happen when you can no longer manage your financial or health affairs.

It should be noted that it is crucial to instruct suitably qualified will solicitors to draft your Will as the last thing you would want is for the Will to be challenged or deemed invalid.
