Wills & Probate Solicitors

Is it necessary to have a Will drawn up?

Here at rhw, if we were to suggest one thing you could do in your life to give you peace of mind, we would suggest that you get a Will drawn up. Unfortunately a lot of people do not get a Will put in place during their lifetimes and this can cause a lot of angst and problems once they have passed on.

We want your Will to properly represent your wishes and protect the future of your family and business. Our solicitors will listen to your unique requirements and properly understand your situation. We will ask you the questions that need to be asked, that should make you have to think about scenarios that you may not have considered otherwise. rhw will provide the best legal advice to ensure you achieve your required outcomes.

A Quality Will ensures your wishes are met 

There are a lot of individuals and various ‘outfits’ advertising their services online, in magazines and on websites offering to draft your Will for less than a round of drinks! What you will notice with many of them is that they focus very heavily on the price and not on the service itself. There’s a reason for that…..

Your Will is vital to the future security of your family and, sometimes, your business. What they should be focusing on is the quality of what they produce and whether the Will reflects your circumstances and wishes. Once you die you cannot change the Will or the outcome of what has been left for others to sort out.

Wills should stand up to scrutiny 

When you meet with one of rhw’s experienced Will Solicitors you will be asked questions that will get you thinking about what exactly it is you want to happen after you have gone. We will put scenarios to you that those offering rock bottom prices will just ignore. What rhw look to do is ensure your Will covers all the bases and holds up 100% to scrutiny after your death.

Law Society Accredited - Wills & Inheritance Quality

How Wills solicitors can help you...

Initially contact Jessica Pope or Helen Barker.  rhw has the Law Society Wills & Inheritance Quality (WIQS) accreditation.

With a professionally drawn Will you can be sure that:

  • Your chosen loved ones will be provided for (this is particularly important for unmarried couples as a surviving partner does not have the same legal inheritance rights as a surviving spouse).
  • Suitable executors/trustees have been chosen to administer your estate and (if necessary) manage assets held on trust for your children.
  • Guardians have been appointed for your children.
  • Your Will is as inheritance tax efficient as possible.

Each Will is tailor-made so as to be appropriate to that client’s financial and personal circumstances. We see our job as not only taking instructions but also putting forward suggestions and encouraging clients to consider options they had not previously thought of.

We want your Will to continue to protect your interests after you have passed on. To this end we do not offer a cheap, one size fits all service. We have witnessed, on too many occasions, what can occur to badly or inappropriately drawn up Wills when they are contested.

We understand that making a Will can be quite daunting, so our aim is to be friendly and approachable while providing a professional service. Clients are encouraged to ask questions and understand fully the document they are signing.
