Wills

A will is one of the most important documents that you will create in your lifetime

Without a will when you die, your estate will be divided in accordance with the rules of intestacy.

The intestacy rules do not suit everyone and it may be that your loved ones will miss out on receiving inheritance under these rules or your estate may pass to family members who you would not wish to inherit anything without a legally drafted Will in place.

Making a will​​

At Boyletts Law we understand that making a Will is not something that any of us want to think about. A Will can be confusing, upsetting and often filled with language which is unfamiliar and intimidating. You may not be sure that you even need a Will but it is something everyone should have in place so that you can have peace of mind in knowing what will happen to your property, money and everything you value in the event of your death. Please visit our Start Your Will Now page for more information about the different ways in which you can begin this process with us.

How do I make a will​?

When making a will, it is important that you have a qualified Lawyer or Solicitor who specialises in Wills and Estate Planning by your side to make the process as easy and smooth as possible. At Boyletts Law we are qualified lawyers and Wills specialists with extensive experience in advising on all matters surrounding Wills and succession planning. We will work with you and listen to your objectives and answer all concerns and questions you may have.

Unlike a will writing company our Wills Specialists will provide you with bespoke advice, tailored to your personal circumstances and make suggestions which we feel will benefit you to produce a legally binding and secure Will, reflecting your wishes and provide for your beneficiaries.

When considering your Will it is important to be aware that your it can deal with a whole number of matters relating to your estate as follows:

  • Appoint executors – this is somebody you nominate to carry out the wishes in your will
  • Funeral wishes
  • Appointment of guardians for your children if they are under the age of 18
  • Protection for your pets
  • Protecting your property
  • Creation of trusts – asset protection
  • Distribution of personal effects such as jewellery, photographs, a car, your record collection etc.
  • Gifts to charities
  • Specific gifts of money to family or friends
  • What happens to your digital assets – Facebook, YouTube, Bitcoin, iTunes library etc.
  • Provision for spouse or civil partner
