It’s never too early but it can be too late

I know that thinking about your Will is difficult and you’d rather put it off for another day.

I felt the same way when I first made a Will. That’s why I want to make it as easy as possible for you. Rest assured, it won’t take hours of your time.

Our first meeting typically takes about one hour and a half. After that, I’ll write the Will and send you a draft to review. Once you’re happy with it, you’ll simply need to sign your Will in the presence of witnesses.

Finding out about your circumstances is very important. If you have children from a previous relationship or if you’re going through a divorce, a simple Will may not be effective.

You may have a valuable home, a rental property or properties, a business or lots of other assets. In that case, you may need to consider inheritance tax.

Once I know your circumstances, I’ll run through the options available so that you can decide on the best course of action. It’s as simple as that.

You might be looking for a cheap Will, or even a free Will, and you can certainly get one online. But be aware that a poorly written Will could cause disputes after your death or cost your family unnecessary inheritance tax and high probate fees.

By meeting you face to face, either online or in person, I can find out about your concerns. That way, you can be sure that your Will will do exactly what you want it to. So why not contact Bristol Wills & Estate Planning today and get the ball rolling?

Don’t put it off!
