At Peak Estate Planning we understand the importance of making your wishes known in event of your death or in event that you become unable to make decisions yourself due to illness. The prospect of making a will can be daunting and we offer a professional and friendly service in order for yourself and your family to be protected. If you do not have a valid Will, your property will pass according to the Law of Intestacy and therefore may not pass to the people you may have wished to receive it.
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. A valid will will enable you to:
- Choose someone that you trust to look after your children (under 18 years) – Guardians.
- Appoint someone you trust to carry out the terms of your Will – Executors.
- Specify the people or charities you want to benefit from your estate – Beneficiaries.
- Leave gifts of specific items or fixed sums of money – Legacies.
- Create Trusts to help preserve wealth for future generations, protect against residential care costs or help vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries.
- State your funeral wishes.
