Writing a will isn’t as complicated as it looks,

here are a few things to keep in mind.

Speak to your family regarding your wishes

Being transparent with loved ones about what you intend to do is always a good idea when coming to write your will. We would always encourage people to have the conversation with their families. It saves stress and heartache and if you are leaving money to charities, explain that to your family so that they understand the reasoning behind the choices within your will.

Make sure to think about childcare

Writing a will isn’t just about getting your financial affairs in order. You’ll also need to think about things like who looks after your children if you’re not there. Another important step is to appoint executors – trusted people who will deal with your estate in the event of your death. Ideally, executors should be business-minded family or friends, or they can be professional advisers.

Speak to the professionals

By using Your Will Matters to write your will, you can be sure that it’s legally binding and you can get the help and advice you need to make sure your will is structured in the best way possible.

Worried about care home fees as you get older? We can help to address those concerns. Married again and want to protect the children from your first marriage? We can make sure you ring fence their inheritance. Whatever issues you want to address, we can structure your will to cover those concerns.

Plan for Inheritance Tax

Inheritance Tax is a tax on the estate of someone who has died, including all property, personal possessions and money. There are various reliefs and allowances available which we can take into consideration when advising.

Our team offer inheritance tax advice to your family, and review your specific financial circumstances to ensure that the IHT payable on your estate is kept at minimum.

Revisit your will at least every 3 years or following significant changes in personal life and financial circumstances.

As your life changes, so should your will. We encourage clients to revisit their will and plan their estate yearly to ensure changes are always kept on top of.

Whether you have experienced a significant life event such as the birth of a baby, a change of marital status or the sale of a property, you want to make sure that your will is current and ensures your assets and property are distributed according to your wishes after you die.

Don’t forget about personal items and digital assets.

Whether it be a family heirloom, a collection, a book of photographs or journal filled with memories, we all have items that are significant to us but wouldn’t necessarily look important to someone else. Your will gives you the opportunity to not only think about the big stuff, but also to put in writing all the little things that you’d like carried out in a certain way.

These days, our digital assets are an important consideration, too. We all have increasing amounts of assets stored online, ranging from email and Facebook accounts, passwords for online accounts, to digital music and photos. You can choose to pass these onto family or friends when writing a will.

Why choose
Your Will Matters?

Gone are the days of complicated processes and inflated prices. We believe that writing a will shouldn’t be the daunting prospect it’s made out to be, nor should it cost an arm and a leg.

Your Will Matters help people to write solicitor backed wills quickly and efficiently. We’ll ensure that the assets you work hard for are protected so the people you love are looked after when you’re gone.

A will may well be the most important document you write in your lifetime, so it’s important to get it right. We take the hassle out of the process, letting you get on with life.

Hard to contest

Many wills can be contested if loopholes are found, or if they’re not up to date. Our wills comply with the STEP will writing code of England and Wales, meaning that they’re very unlikely to be contested.

Quick and simple process

Saves time compared to visiting a high street solicitor. Whether you use our easy online tool, or you’d rather speak to a member of our team, our process is designed to take as little time as possible.

Professional advice and support

Our solicitors are on hand to assist you in the process. Whether this is the first will you’ve written, or you’re updating an old one, we all need a little help sometimes.

Avoid issues once you’re gone

Without a will, dividing your estate may cause disputes, dependents may lose your financial support, you may create an unnecessary inheritance tax bill and the courts will choose new guardians for your Children. It doesn’t take long and your family will be thankful.

Upfront and honest

 We’ve laid out all of our prices so you know exactly how much your will costs from the outset – no hidden costs, no nonsense.

“This firm came recommended by a
family friend and I can see why.”

I always thought writing a will was a very complicated process, that I had put off doing for a long time. They are fast and understanding and they do explain everything thoroughly, so you fully understand. Their prices are very competitive as well.
