About Wills At Home
Who are we?
We have been writing Wills here in Nottinghamshire for over 17 years and have, to date, drafted over 4,000 Wills. All are simple, straightforward and easy to understand; after all who wants a complicated will?
What do we do?
Our function as Will writers is to simply explain to people what their options are, then and only then, can they make their own informed decisions.
These options vary in accordance with individual circumstances. Do the people have children? Is it important that the children inherit? Do they own a property (with or without a mortgage)? If so, who gets what, and in what shares? However, frequently it is just as important to decide who must not inherit under any circumstances. Just leaving them out of the Will is no longer sufficient.
Many of our clients have been concerned about what they have seen on television or read in the newspapers about people losing their homes to pay for care fees. Or, perhaps this has already affected your family or you know someone who has suffered in this way. There are, most certainly, things that can be done, so in such instances I always explain the advantages of using various trusts.
Trusts can do many other things. Take a case of where someone is about to inherit their parent’s home (always assuming the Care Authorities haven’t already stepped in) but, unfortunately they are going through a messy divorce, or creditors are lying in wait to grab whatever comes along. A Will does not offer any protection in such cases, but a trust could ensure that 100% of any inheritance goes only to the named beneficiary. And that is exactly what the parents wanted from the start.
