Wills

Having a properly drafted Will is your opportunity to record your wishes in relation to the succession to your estate on your death. It is wrong to assume that the Laws of Succession which apply when you die intestate (without leaving a Will) will necessarily reflect your wishes.

The absence of a Will can create additional costs and and can result in delays in the administration of your affairs.

Service to suit your needs

Coronavirus

Particular legal professionals have been named key workers during the COVID-19 outbreak, ‘essential to the running of the justice system’. One of the categories was solicitors acting in connection with the execution of Wills.

If you are concerned about falling ill and wish to make a will urgently or grant a power of attorney, please get in touch and we will prioritise this work. The Law Society of Scotland recognises the importance of this work and has issued revised guidelines to enable us to deal with it during this crisis and the lockdown.

Executing a will

Each Will is bespoke to your particular requirements. It is a very personal document recording your wishes. We therefore take extra care in discussing your requirements to make sure that these can be addressed. These are ascertained during a full discussion about your family situation, your financial position, your wishes and the many options available.

A word of warning

Don't be tempted to use a home made or off the shelf Will

There are a number of organisations and websites offering these for a fixed fee or providing standard documents for your completion. These often create uncertainty and are at worst invalid.
