Making a will is something that people have a tendency to put off but having a will is important for everyone. In fact the process need not be frightening and you then have peace of mind knowing that whatever befalls you, your family and loved ones have been provided for. We can help you with the decisions that you need to make, taking into account the needs of your family and the implications of the tax regime.

Certainty - where there is a will

The firm is a member of the Certainty National Registry of Wills and we are now encouraging everyone who makes a will to register it with Certainty.

In a recent survey, 67% of people surveyed did not know where to find their parents' Wills. Indeed tens of thousands of estates do fall into intestacy each year, which can cause emotional and financial turmoil for loved ones.

Although we keep a database of all the Wills which we hold, changing circumstances, moving to another area or simply the passage of time can sometimes make it difficult for beneficiaries to locate a Will. Registering your Will ensures that solicitors across the country can log the existence of Wills in a central place. This ensures that your Will is easily traceable by your beneficiaries and not overlooked.

What does the registry of Wills do?

  • The registry records that we hold your Will; no one there sees it, and we keep it here.
  • Following your death, the registry gives us details about anyone who is looking for your Will.
  • We answer the query if it is legitimate, but if not we ignore it, thus protecting both your privacy and your beneficiaries.

Sadly, none of us are immortal and we cannot take our possessions with us. Regularly reviewing your Will and having it registered is one of the most important things that you can do for your loved ones.
