Wills and Probate

Making a will is vital as it enables you to determine what happens to your property, bank accounts, money, and assets after you pass away.

If you don’t have a valid will in place when you die, your assets will be shared according to the law and they may end up being given to someone you did not want to receive them, and some loved ones may end up with nothing at all.

Stating your clear wishes in a will can help to secure the futures of your family and loved ones. It can also help to prevent unnecessary expenses, litigation, conflict, and distress for loved ones after you’ve gone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each Will is tailored to an individual’s requirements and for some people the complexity of a Will can be greater than another’s. As a general answer we would advise between 4 – 6 weeks however once a legal specialist has been allocated to you, they will be able to give you a confirmed timescale.

Whilst you can’t make a joint Will, you can opt to make Mirror Wills. Mirror Wills are used should you and your partner wish for your assets to be distributed identically. This means that no matter who passes first, you can create a Will in which all your estate will be inherited by the survivor.

The purpose of having a Will in place is so upon your death, your estate is inherited by the beneficiaries you choose. 

Should you die without having a Will in place, your estate will become subject to the Rules of Intestacy. This means that you won’t have any say in who administers your estate and who inherits your estate.

What Our Clients Say
 

We were really pleased with Mr Fuller who dealt with our wills and Power of Attorney. He explained everything to us clearly and in detail, and was very helpful. He answered our questions and helped us to understand the full implications of both. We are very satisfied with the results from our meeting with Mr Fuller.

The thought of making a will filled me with apprehension but after our first meeting with Christina Polychronakis all fears were dispelled. Christina was excellent. She explained everything very clearly. The process was done exactly as we wanted. I would defiantly recommend Christina and FBC Manby Bowdler.

Excellent service. From the initial contact it was a pleasure to have Victoria dealing with this. Her patience and understanding installed a confidence in me that the right person was dealing with this matter. I would be very happy for Victoria to deal with any future requirements I may have.
