Choosing the right professional

It is important to make sure that you choose a reputable company who not only will make sure that your will is drafted and filed legally but that also understands how difficult it can be to talk about your wishes for your belongings after your death. It might be that you would prefer to use a local Will Writing Cheltenham company rather than a bug national organisation. But the choice is entirely yours.

Not having a will in place is risky

Many people think that a married couple will automatically inherit when the other one dies. This is not a certain guarantee and the government will decide who inherits an estate through the laws of intestacy.

There are different types of wills

There are a number of different types of wills available and the one that you choose will depend very much on your own individual circumstances. For example for some couples a ‘mirror’ will may be appropriate whereas for others with more complex estates  single wills may be more appropriate. Your chosen legal professional will be able to help you identify which is best for your circumstances.
