Enabling you to protect what is important to you. Protecting what you care for is one of the most responsible things you can do in your life.
Your will means that courts don’t have to make decisions about who your savings, property and personal possessions are distributed to, as it is all clearly stated in the legal document.
Having a will in place can give you massive peace of mind. You’ll have put some order and arrangements in place for an extremely emotional situation.
Make sure you do it in time! Make plans now to ensure your wishes are always followed in the future.

If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. What are the repercussions of not having a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

Our team believes that writing a will in Wouldham doesn’t have to be overly formal or a dry experience As a business that is family owned we always wants to provide a warm, friendly and open approach whilst delivering expert advice and professional services.
We have been assisting people in writing wills and providing estate planning in Wouldham to happy customers in Wouldham since our formation in 2014. The full range of will writing services we provide in Wouldham Whichever stage of life you have reached now is a good time to write a will. Whether you are buying a property, making significant financial decisions, or simply want to feel secure in how your savings will be distributed in the event of your passing, making a will takes away any element of doubt and puts you in control.
We always maintain high standards and meet the code of practice of The Society of Will Writers, which we’re members of, and keep your requirements and best interests in keen focus. We have developed a great reputation for offering a straight forward, friendly approach over the 1500+ legally compliant Wills that we have produced. Our experts can also organise the legal arrangements for Lasting Powers of Attorney (L PA) if required.
If you were unable to make decisions due to an accident or illness causing a loss of mental capacity then the person you have trusted with power of attorney will be able to look after your financial, welfare and health needs, and to make decisions on your behalf. It is always important to have a plan in place at every stage of life, whether you are buying a new property, trying to understand how are your estate would be split, or are just simply trying to have a bit of control for the future. Our will writing service in Wouldham will always ensure that your exact wishes and your best interests are represented in the will produced.
The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Wouldham that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.
Will writing doesn’t have to be an expensive, stuffy experience you put off until it’s too late!
Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. From family trusts and probate forms to prepaid funerals, we offer a range of services that make estate planning easier, and that takes the strain of your family during the emotional time after passing.
We can make legal provisions for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If you have diminished mental capacity due to an illness, or because you have an accident, you may need a trusted person to have LPA and it will make it a lot easier if this is organised prior to the life changing event occurring.
Keeping your will It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. We will talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
The Society of Will Writers was established in 1994 and has, over the years, grown to become the biggest and arguably the best self-regulatory body for estate planners and will writing. The Society of Will Writers act as a self-regulatory body by vetting practitioners through stringent membership requirements, proficiency standards and ongoing training.
The public is protected from unscrupulous and unqualified will writers by official bodies including The Institute of Professional Will Writers, who are the recognised body for both protecting and promoting the will writing sector.
