Making a Will

When you have made a Will, you can relax knowing that after your death your assets will be dealt with in accordance with your wishes taking into account the relevant tax legislation. You can also rest assured that you have completed one of the most important ways of planning for your family’s financial future.

 

At Lamb Brooks, we ensure that your Will is specific to you and your own personal circumstances. We will guide you through the process of making a Will in a way which is clear and easy to understand. Our specialist advisers include members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (“STEP”), who adhere to the STEP Will Writing Code.

 

As you move through the various stages of your life, you should ensure that your Will continues to be appropriate to your circumstances. Even if you feel your circumstances have not changed significantly, we recommend that you review your Will every three to five years, in order to take account of any changes to tax legislation.

 

We can lodge your Will in our strong room for safe keeping – free of charge. We can also arrange for it to be registered with Certainty, the first National Wills Register.

 

We understand that making a Will is often a chore at the bottom of everyone’s ‘to do’ lists, however it really is vital. Many people pass away each year without a valid Will in place which means their estate will be dealt with by the state through intestacy rules. With more and more families having complex structures (blended families, previous marriages, step-children etc.) the importance of updating your Will is crucial in order to protect and care for your loved ones.

"I recently updated my existing will held with Lamb Brooks and once again received an excellent service - very friendly and information and at a reasonable price. Thank you!"
