Providing you with ways to be responsible in protecting what matters. Protecting what you care for is one of the most responsible things you can do in your life.
Having a will makes sure that it is clear where you want your possessions, savings and property to be distributed so that courts don’t need to make the decisions.
Once you have a will in place, you will feel a massive sense of relief. You will have created some order and clear instructions for a time that can be massively emotional.
Don’t leave it too late! Make plans so that you know that your wishes will be understood and carried out.

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

Our staff try to make the will-writing in Caterham experience an interesting one Our expert team provides advice and professional services in the context of a warm and friendly family-owned business environment.
Founded in 2014, we have years of experience in will writing and estate planning in Caterham, working with satisfied customers in and around Caterham. The will writing services that we offer in Caterham Wills are a responsible thing to do at any stage of life. Whether you have significant financial decisions to make, are buying a property, have just sold a business, or just want to feel a little more confident about the way your assets will be distributed if you were to pass, drawing up a will removes doubt, puts you in control and gives you peace of mind.
In everything we do we always have your best interests at heart, and focus on your requirements, maintaining high standards of work representative of our membership of The Society of Will Writers who are responsible for the code of practice for the industry. We have developed a great reputation for offering a straight forward, friendly approach over the 1500+ legally compliant Wills that we have produced. As part of our services, we can make legal arrangements for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA).
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 doesn’t matter whether you are just taking a look at how are your estate will be distributed, if you’re buying a property, thinking about what will happen to it in the future, or just want to make some additional plans, having a will is a sensible decision at any stage of life. Our will writing service in Caterham will always ensure that your exact wishes and your best interests are represented in the will produced.
The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. 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 and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Writing a will in Caterham can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.
Will writing doesn’t have to be an expensive, stuffy experience you put off until it’s too late!
As well as offering high-quality will writing, Brighton Wills and Family Trust is happy to provide a full selection 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 the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If you have diminished mental capacity then you may need to have estate planning done by someone else trusted by you, and they will need LPA.
Keeping your will safe 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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. 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 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 (IPW) was founded in 1991 as a self-regulatory body to safeguard the public from unqualified practitioners and unethical business practices and has become established as a recognised professional regulating body which promotes the profession of will waiting in the United Kingdom.
