Everyone needs a Will. A Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are respected when you’re gone and your assets are distributed in accordance with your instructions. Without a Will you lose the power to decide what happens and the law decides how your estate is distributed. People who you may not want to benefit may receive some or all of your assets.
Why you need to have an up-to-date Will.
Anyone with assets and loved ones know they need a Will. But it’s often last on the list or falls into the too hard basket. That’s because it can be a challenge knowing where to start. Thankfully you’re in the right place.
At Trustees Executors Private Wealth we offer both online Wills and tailored Wills. A tailored Will involves meeting with one of our estate planning specialists to work out exactly what you need to consider for your circumstances. Our tailored Wills fall into three categories:
As an example, a Standard Will involves a straightforward distribution of your assets. This is when all of your estate passes equally to your immediate family. Each of our tailored Wills attract a fee, based on your specific situation and complexity of needs.
Is creating an online Will right for you?
Best suited to those with simple instructions, you can create your Will from the comfort of home. An online Will is completed without specialist consultation with one of our team of experts, so if your situation is straight forward, such as you wish to leave your estate to one special person, or equally between many people, you can use our Online Will System. If you’re unsure if an online Will is right for your circumstances give us a call to discuss if it covers exactly what you need it to.
When should you review your Will?
You should review your Will whenever your personal circumstances or wishes change. For example:
If changes in your life mean you need to make further updates, it's easy to contact us to make the necessary changes. We provide continuity so you and your family can have peace of mind that we will always be here when you need us.
