Wills

According to recent research two thirds of adults in the UK do not have a Will.  This can lead to untold distress and uncertainty for the family left behind.  Without a valid Will, the rules of intestacy will govern who can manage and benefit from your estate. Our aim is always to produce a Will that is clear and concise, and that you readily understand. If requested, the Partners in the firm are willing to act as Executors of your Will. As with all dealings with us, you can be assured that your affairs will always be discussed in the strictest of confidence, and we offer a free safe custody service for your original Will.

Trusts

A trust is a legal arrangement whereby property (such as land, money or other assets) are held by one or more people ("trustees") for the benefit of other people ("beneficiaries"). It is the responsibility of the trustees to manage the trust, and carry out the wishes of the person who created the trust (the "settlor"). Generally, trusts are created by a legal deed within which the settlor will state what it is they want the trust to accomplish together with who the trustees and beneficiaries are.
