A Will is quite possibly one of the most important documents you will ever sign. One of the most distinguishing features of all Wills is that it requires two witnesses to be valid. It is your way of making sure that whoever you care most about in the world is the person or persons who inherits your estate on your death. You must complete your Will when you are of sound mind. You will need to appoint executors, guardians and beneficiaries. It is also worth considering who will inherit your estate if your chosen beneficiaries die before you or with you.

We offer an initial free Will healthcheck to see if the Will you already have in place suits your current circumstances and wishes.

How do you make a Will?

The process of making a Will here at Clarke & Son is straightforward. All Wills are prepared on a fixed fee basis and the fee includes a meeting to discuss your Will, concerns and advise you on the best way to proceed or give you options, including dealing with any ancillary issues, such as property ownership, business interests, second families, tax, trusts and so on. The draft Will is then sent to you with a detailed explanatory letter and then we move to the next meeting to get the Will signed and witnessed. In certain circumstances the Will can be sent to you for this purpose.

What do you need to bring to the Wills & Estate Panning  meeting?

Please bring with you full names and addresses of all mentioned in your Will in whatever capacity… executor, guardian or beneficiary.

We offer a complimentary free Will storage service.

If you have a query or would like to book an appointment please get in touch with our team on 01256 320555 or email mail@clarkeandson.co.uk.
