Will Services

Everyone should have a Will regardless of how much or how little money they have.

There are a number of good reasons for having a Will prepared for yourself not least of which is the desire to see that the people you want to benefit from your Estate do so.

  • Do you know that if you don’t leave a Will you surviving spouse might not receive your whole Estate?

  • Do you know that in certain cases if there is no Will the whole Estate will go to the Crown?

  • Do you know that there is a presumption on Scots Law that if you have a child your existing Will is revoked?

Even if you have a Will it makes good sense to review it every now and again, particularly when there have been changes in family circumstances such as the birth of a child or a grandchild.

Despite the changes made to Inheritance Tax Rules recently which allow spouses or civil partners to aggregate their Inheritance Tax allowances, Inheritance Tax is still a major issue in dealing with anyone’s Estate so it is vital to discuss that issue fully with your solicitor when drawing up a Will.
