Making a Will

Many people don’t like the idea of making a Will. It is something they would rather put off until a later date and in many cases they never get round to doing it.

However, your Will is probably the most important document that you will ever create. It sets out what should happen to the assets you have worked so hard for and how your friends and family will benefit. Without a Will, you could leave your loved ones something far less desirable; a legacy of stress, anxiety or doubt.

The good news is that here at Morecrofts we have the important legal skills to prepare Wills properly. In fact, our expert Wills team ensure that we guide and advise you on making the process as straightforward as possible.

With our help you can achieve far more than setting out who should inherit what. For instance, did you know that a carefully written Will can be a means of reducing inheritance tax? More importantly, for those of you with young children, it can direct who should care for them if anything should happen to you.

Even if you already have a Will it is advisable to have it reviewed after five years or even sooner if your financial or personal circumstances have changed.
