Wills

If you care about what happens to your property after you die, you should make a will. Without one, the State directs who inherits, so your friends, favourite charities and relatives may get nothing.

It is particularly important to make a will if you are not married or are not in a registered civil partnership (a legal arrangement that gives same-sex partners the same status as a married couple). This is because the law does not automatically recognise cohabitants, (partners who live together), as having the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners. As a result, even if you've lived together for many years, your cohabitant may be left with nothing if you have not made a will.

A will is also vital if you have children or dependants who may not be able to care for themselves. Without a will there could be uncertainty about who will look after or provide for them if you die.

We can also advise you on how inheritance tax affects what you own.

You should also consider speak to us about making a will if:

Once you have had a will drawn up, some changes to your circumstances - for example, marriage, civil partnership, separation, divorce or if your civil partnership is dissolved (legally ended) - can make all or part of that will invalid or inadequate. This means that you must review your will regularly, to reflect any major life changes. We can tell you what changes may be necessary to update your will.

If you choose to instruct KK Law to work with you, your Will will be prepared by Rob Watson, our Principal and highly experienced Private Client Solicitor. We do not use unqualified ‘legal advisors’ or ‘caseworkers’. We are not a ‘factory’ where ‘one size fits all’. We tailor our service to your particular needs.
