Specialist Will Writing

Protect your family’s future and ensure your wishes are carried out in the event of your death by making a Will.


The subject of death is one that many of us don’t want to think about, especially your own. Putting a will in place is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death.  We can write a will on your behalf, which captures all of your wishes, in all sorts of areas that you might not have considered, so that you can have peace of mind for the future.

Have you registered your Will?

As a member of The National Will Register we can now register your Will for you.

Why should I register my Will?

In a survey commissioned by The National Will Register, two thirds of children would not know where to locate their parents’ Wills. The passage of time, house moves, and new relationships are all contributing factors to this statistic.

Writing a Will

Writing a Will and regularly reviewing it is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. Ensuring that your family can therefore find it when you have passed on is essential. If a Will cannot be found after your death, then your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules, not necessarily in the way you would have wished.

We hold your Will safely, but we record its location with The National Will Register so that beneficiaries can always locate it when the time comes.

The National Will Register does not store original documents, or copies of documents. Rather, it stores information about who is in possession of documents such as Wills, to help ensure that those responsible for administering estates will be able to locate such documents.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document outlining your wishes in the event of your death.  This could include who cares for your children, to what happens to your property and how your finances are managed.  Whether you are married, in a relationship or single, it’s important to consider making a will.

I'm married, will everything just go to my partner?

If you die without making a will, your partner will not automatically receive everything.  This is called dying intestate and there are rules which take into account the value of your estate and your children.

I'm not married, will my partner inherit my estate?

Unmarried couples have no legal rights to each other’s estates, so it’s really important to have a will in place, to make sure that your partner gets what you would want them to in the event of your death.

What decisions will I make in my will?

You can specify just about anything in a will.  Common decisions include:

Guardians – people who you trust to care for your children until they reach 18

Funeral – you can specify what you would like to happen

Executors – who you trust to carry out your wishes

Gifts – you can choose who you’d like to receive specific items or amounts of money

Pets – you may want to specify who should look after your pet

Vulnerable people – you could make decisions to protect any vulnerable loved ones

Are there different types of wills?

There are a number of different types of wills, designed to meet different people’s situations:

Single Will – for individuals or partners with different wishes 

Mirror Will – where you and your partner have almost identical wishes
