We each have an opportunity to leave a legacy that is testament to a life well lived. We may have items of significant value that we’d like particular family members, friends or charities close to our hearts to inherit, or items of sentimental value that we’d like to see gifted and cherished after we’re gone. Putting these wishes into a Will is the only way to legally protect them. There are very practical considerations to include too if there’s a risk of leaving behind any minors or pets. This is why our Will and probate solicitors always encourage early planning. Careful tax and inheritance planning early on in life can have real benefits later on.
Our understanding team are also there to support those going through the probate process – whether its support for an executor you’ve appointed, or you’re an executor yourself. An executor of an estate should be someone trustworthy and who has the fortitude to deal with the pressures of the role. It is the executor’s duty to ensure the wishes set out in the Last Will and Testament are carried out, which can be an emotionally taxing duty for someone experiencing grief. We are there to help guide executors through the process or can take on the duty directly.
