Woodward Wills & Probate
Often making a will is not something that we think about until later in life. However, it is possibly one of the most important documents that we can have drafted to ensure that our wishes are met when the time is needed.
Whether you have a lot of possession or just a few items, you should think about making a will sooner rather than later – in fact the earlier the better.
Here at Woodward Solicitors we are able to draft a will to ensure that your wishes are clear and adhered to upon death. We offer a no obligation discussion about the process, what is included and what needs to be done in order to ensure the will is valid.
If you die without a will, there are rules as to how your property and possessions (estate) are dealt with. This may not be how you would wish them to be dealt with. It is even more important when you have a partner (whether married or not) and children so that they do not lose out.
Woodward Solicitors are also happy to review your current will and bring this up to date. Remember you can and should update your will regularly.
When someone passes they will (or should have) appointed an executor to deal with the assets of the estate. Probate is the process in dealing with these assets.
Woodward Solicitors can provide help and guidance on obtain the grant of Probate for you to ensure that you are able to deal with the assets in a quick and easy manner.
