Making & Contesting Wills

The distributions of a deceased persons assets after their death can be stressful and difficult for those left behind unless a Will is made which sets out clearly what is to occur.

By making a Will you ensure that your inheritance or your estate will pass on to the people you want to receive it, otherwise known as the beneficiaries.

If you do not make a Will you will be relying on what is known as the Rules of Intestacy. These rules basically allow for your estate to vest in your next of kin upon your death and you may not want this to occur. If you do not make a Will however this is what will occur.

In order to ensure that your Will is valid there are a number of formalities which must be adhered to therefore making your Will with your Solicitor present is of paramount importance.
