Do you have a Will in place?
If you were to die today, have you left clear instructions for your loved ones?
Will the people you care about receive what you would like them to? Will they be left fighting over documents that are unclear and do not state your exact wishes? Will they be left paying a large amount of what is left to them to the taxman? These are all things to think about when you do not have a Will in place.
We should all have a Will written up and put in place. If you do not have a Will, then your Estate will pass according to intestacy laws, which may not reflect the wishes you had. By having a Will in place you have the opportunity to state who you want to benefit from your Estate and assets and make it easier for your loved ones to carry out your wishes.
Having a Will in place allows you to appoint guardians for your children who are under the age of eighteen.
It is also important to ensure that your Will is kept up to date, you would not want all of your possessions being left to a former partner while your current partner is left with nothing.
Jordans Solicitors are on hand to help you create or amend a Will in the Sandwell area. Our will-writing solicitors are also able to help administer a Will through Probate. When making a Will you might also want to think about making a Lasting Power Of Attorney.

For the majority of people in Sandwell, making a Will is a simple, low-cost, stress-free piece of legal work. On the other hand, the cost of sorting out the mess that is left when someone dies without a Will, with an out-of-date Will or with a badly created Will can be massive and cause a lot of stress for loved ones. It only takes an hour or so to make a Will and it can save your loved ones hours of heartache and on some occasions thousands of pounds in legal fees.
