Will Guide

After lifetime estate planning the logical and essential step is to compliment this by making a Will which carries on the process and enables you to fully take advantage of all the possible options.
The drafting of a Will can significantly affect the inheritance tax position on death.

The making of a Will allows all property owners to control what happens to their assets after death in so far as:-
The person entrusted with the work (the Executor) is specifically nominated
There is a clear statement of entitlement
The beneficiaries are clearly identified
It may contain alternative provisions if the first nominated beneficiary is pre-deceased
It may contain special wishes and directions
It may include tax savings/exemption clauses

If there is no Will, there are obviously no such protective measures and the assets will be inherited under what are known as Intestacy Rules. However, following the preparation of the Will, the administration of the Estate of a deceased person may proceed along the definite and planned lines of Probate.

A Will is a very specialised document that as well as being extremely personal to you, is also the result of careful drafting and close review, not a pre-printed sheet of paper that can simply be bought and filled in over the counter.

A Will has to be drawn up correctly for it to be legally binding, of course. But perhaps more importantly, so that it can accurately reflect the client’s wishes and instructions.
