Will Writing Service

Creating a will is essential for ensuring your wishes are honoured after your passing.

While it’s common to postpone this task, if you want to safeguard your loved ones’ interests and dictate the distribution of your assets, drafting a will is crucial.

Our will-writing solicitors at DLS Solicitors. can assist you in detailing your desired allocation of money, property, and possessions, providing reassurance that critical decisions will be managed and your estate will be distributed according to your preferences.

What is a Will?

A will is a legal document that allows you to specify how your wealth (including money, property, shares, savings, investments, and personal or digital possessions) should be distributed after your passing, as well as providing instructions for the care of your children.

Our wills solicitors in Manchester provide a reliable will writing service and can assist you in crafting a will that meets your unique needs and addresses all considerations.

It’s important for everyone to have a will, but it becomes particularly critical when you own a house, have a business, have a young family, or if your family situation is complex. If you are unsure about whether you need a will, consulting one of our will writing solicitors in Manchester is advisable.

Our legal services cover a range of areas, including:

  • Making a Will and Will Writing
  • Inheritance Tax Planning
  • Trusts for Children
  • Deeds of Variation
  • Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Court of Protection matters
  • Probate and Estate Administration
  • Will and Estate Disputes
  • Business Protection and Succession Planning

For specialised legal advice on these matters, please contact us for assistance.

Do I need a will?

Planning ahead is crucial if you want to retain control over the distribution of your estate in the future. A will is a legally binding document that grants you full authority over the posthumous management of your assets and the beneficiaries of your legacy.

It stands as one of the most pivotal documents you will ever create, addressing critical matters including:

  • Determining guardianship for your children.
  • Outlining the distribution of your assets.
  • Appointing executors to manage your will.
  • Safeguarding assets for future generations.
  • Specifying your funeral preferences.

By proactively planning and organising your affairs, you’ll alleviate stress for your family and loved ones. Additionally, strategic planning ensures that your beneficiaries can benefit from applicable tax relief or exemptions.

What happens if I don’t write a will?

If you pass away without a will, your estate will be subject to the rules of intestacy, potentially resulting in your assets being distributed contrary to your wishes.

The rules of intestacy do not recognise unmarried partners or stepchildren, which means that without a will, your assets may not go to those closest to you. Furthermore, provisions will not be made for individuals who are not directly related to you, and you will not have the ability to designate gifts to your preferred charities. In extreme cases where no blood relatives can be located, your estate might even be claimed by the crown.

If you are separated but not divorced, your estranged spouse could inherit your estate and assume responsibility for its management. Without a will, you will have no control over who cares for your children under the age of 18 or the age at which they gain access to their inheritance.

Moreover, your estate could face higher inheritance tax liabilities than necessary.

A will is the sole method to ensure that your loved ones and their interests are protected. To prevent potential complications for them in the future, it is advisable to arrange your will as soon as possible.

Making Your Will

Proactive planning may initially appear unnecessary, uncomfortable, or complex, but it is the sole method to safeguard your assets and ensure they are distributed according to your wishes. With appropriate legal guidance, this process can be swift, straightforward, and beneficial, securing your family’s future.

Anyone aged 18 or older and of sound mind is eligible to create a will, yet the considerations involved can present intricate and perplexing issues, underscoring the importance of seeking legal counsel.

Additionally, we offer guidance on establishing trusts for children under 18, addressing inheritance tax matters, navigating probate issues, and establishing lasting powers of attorney.
