Wills & Probate

Latest statistics indicate that almost three quarters of all British adults have still not made a valid Will. This is hardly surprising as some people probably think that making a Will is a complicated and/or expensive business. Some probably think that making a Will is something that they will “get round to later” and some probably do not even want to consider what they perceive to be a morbid topic.

However, the reality is that if someone dies without having made a Will, the consequences for the loved ones they leave behind can be devastating.

In short, making a Will is the only way to ensure that your exact wishes are carried out after your death. If a person dies without leaving a valid Will, they are said to die “Intestate” and their assets are therefore at the mercy of what are know as the Rules of Intestacy. These Rules set out the strict order in which that person’s relatives are to receive the whole of or a share of that person’s estate.

Making a Will is easier than you think. At The Eric Whitehead Partnership our Will department will guide you expertly and carefully through the process of making a Will to ensure that your final wishes will be carried out.

Please note that we are not able to advise you on the tax aspects of the transaction. You must take appropriate advice from an accountant or other appropriate advisor regarding how this matter affects your tax position.
