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. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. It is a common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

Our professional standards are always exemplary, and we work to the high levels required by the body that administers the code of practice for will writing, The Society of Will Writers. Since 2014 we have produced over 1500 lasting Power of attorney documents and Wills and our clients tell us they appreciate our non-stuffy approach to our professional services. And we maintain £2 million of professional indemnity insurance to ensure that you can have peace of mind, and always more than happy to provide you with references should you wish to get a grasp of the work we have done in the past.
We firmly believe that drawing up a will doesn’t need to be a formal, stuffy, arduous process- A family owned business with experienced professionals, we strive to offer open and friendly expert advice through all our professional services.
From the time we opened our doors in 2014, our massively experienced will-writing and estate planning professionals in Bagshot have been working with satisfied customers in Bagshot. Will writing services offered in Bagshot Whatever stage of life you are at will writing is a responsible step. Having a well-written will can make you feel more in control and can remove doubts and give you peace of mind, whether you are buying a property, selling a business or just want to know that your estate is planned in the event of your passing.
We are members of The Society of Will Writers, who are responsible for administering the code of conduct for the industry, and we always work to their high standards, keeping your best interests at the centre of all we do. We have drawn up over 1500 wills and have developed a superb reputation through our friendly, open approach. Within our services we can do all the necessary to make legal arrangements for LPA (Lasting Powers of Attorney).
If you were to lose mental capacity due to illness or an accident then the trusted person that has power of attorney would be able to immediately take care of your welfare, financial affairs and health care needs and make decisions on your behalf. No matter whether you are buying a new property, taking a closer look at your estate, or simply planning for future, it is sensible to have a will at any stage of your life, and it is never too early to have a plan in place. We offer professional will writing throughout Bagshot, and always ensure that your best interests are represented in the final document.
At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Bagshot is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.
Will writing doesn’t have to be an expensive, stuffy experience you put off until it’s too late!
Brighton Wills also offer a comprehensive suite of estate planning services alongside our will-writing services. We can help you whether you need probate forms or family trusts, or want to have prepaid funeral arrangements in order to reduce the burden on your family at your passing.
We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may need to plan your estate so that someone you trust has an LPA in the event that you have diminished mental capacity due to illness or accident.
Storing your will The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. If your will cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
The Society of will writers was formed over 25 years ago in 1994, and has developed into the largest, and a widely respected body for regulating estate planning and will writers. Through stringent professional entry requirements for membership, and vetting of standards of proficiency, the Society of Will Writers provides an important self-regulatory function for the will-writing industry. They also provide ongoing training.
The Institute of Professional Will Writers, formed in 1991, is the recognised body for protecting and promoting the will-writing industry, ensuring that the public is safe from the unscrupulous activity of immoral or unqualified will writers.
