Our best advice on Wills issues
Whether bequeathing or inheriting your property and possessions, you can be assured that at Kelcey & Hall those entrusted to protect your interests, know and understand entirely your intentions and your needs.
Why should I write Will?
- A Will gives you peace of mind ensuring that your wishes will be carried out
- Without a Will the distribution of your assets is governed by the law and they may not automatically pass to your spouse, children or other family members as you wish
- A Will can make provision for modern day family dynamics, such as unmarried couples, second marriages, step children and step grandchildren, which are not automatically included by the law
- If there has been a change in your personal circumstances, e.g. marriage, divorce, birth of children or grandchildren – if you made a Will before you were married it may no longer be valid.
- Your Will can appoint guardians to look after any children under the age of 18.
- Using your Will you can record your wishes for items of sentimental value, family pets and other possessions that are close to your heart.
- A Will can allow you to gift money to any charities or other organisations that you may support.
- To avoid costly disputes for your loved ones
At Kelcey & Hall we are able to draft most uncomplicated wills for a fixed price and to make the process as easy for our clients as possible by providing you with sound uncomplicated legal advice.
£250 + vat for a single will. £400 + vat for mirror wills.
These charges are for basic wills and costs may increase according to complexity.
If you ask us to draft your Will you can also ask us to be your Executors. We are happy to provide this service and advise you on matters connected to the Estate.
Appointing someone you know and trust to look after your affairs on your behalf, should a time come when you are unable to make decisions for yourself, provides both security and reassurance. Imagine having a stranger deciding for you what medical treatment you should have, where you should live, or whether your home should be sold? Decisions such as these are better made by someone who knows you, and what you want.
You don’t have to be old to make an LPA. Illness or accident can render you incapable of making decisions for yourself at any stage in your life. Having a legal document in the form of a Lasting Power of Attorney registered with the Office of the Public Guardian will ensure the choices that you would have made yourself are met.
There are two types of LPA’s
- Property & Financial Affairs
- Health and Welfare
