Wills and Trusts

Wills, Trusts and Probate

The only way to guarantee that your wishes are adhered to when you die, is to make a will.  Other reasons are to appoint guardians for your children if they are under 18 and also to plan for inheritance tax.

If you do not make a will, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules, which, depending on who is living at your death may not be the person, or persons that you would have wanted.

If you have a will but made it some time ago, it is always worthwhile reviewing the provisions to make sure that they still match your wishes.  Calder Meynell offer a free will review service, if your will needs to be changed, we can advise you of the best way to do this.

A trust might be the best way to protect your assets and they can be made inter vivos (during your lifetime) or in your will.  Our team can discuss your assets in detail and find the best way to meet your objectives.

Probate deals with someone’s affairs when they die.  When someone dies it can be a very emotional and stressful time.  Our expert lawyers here at Calder Meynell can guide you through what needs to be done when someone dies from registering the death to obtaining a grant of probate, if there is a will, or letters of administration if there is no will.  We can also deal with the paperwork necessary for HM Revenue and Customs, which can be complex.
