Our Will services can make a difficult experience a little easier
Every Will we draft at Mayo Wynne Baxter reflects the circumstances and wishes of our clients. Our experienced Will lawyers encourage every adult to make a Will and check it regularly, particularly when their circumstances change.
Our Will writing service involves us listening to our clients and then writing a Will which reflects their personal circumstances and wishes. Once you have spoken in depth to one of our team members, we’ll do our best to ensure that your funds, property and personal belongings are passed to your chosen beneficiaries.
Professional and skilled Will writing could be the difference between your family and loved ones being catered for, or your assets being divided up in a completely arbitrary way by a set of rules laid down in a statute book. Remember, when you make a Will, it’s one of the most thoughtful and sensible acts anyone can do.
Why our Will writing services are so important to you
There are many things you need to consider when writing a Will, but fortunately our experienced team of Will practitioners will focus on every detail and wish. Some Wills contain trusts and inheritance tax planning, include letters of wishes giving small mementos to family and friends.
When thinking about your Will a little preparation can save a lot of time. Our specialist team will discuss the following areas with you and advise how your Will would deal with them and the associated tax implications:
- What you own, including property, personal possessions, bank accounts, insurance policies, investments and pensions. Don’t forget foreign property
- What your possessions are worth
- What you can give. Your Will might not be able to deal with everything you wish to give away: for example, there are restrictions on gifts of jointly owned property and foreign assets.
- Who you want to give it to
