If you wish to write a will or amend an existing will to ensure your estate is distributed according to your wishes after you die, our expert solicitors are here to help.
Our award-winning solicitors - based across Yorkshire - are on hand to guide you through the will writing process, giving you the peace of mind that your family and loved ones will be provided for after you die. We are widely regarded for our high standards of service, and will do our utmost to ensure that your specific requirements are met.
If a will is not drafted properly, the document can be deemed invalid and have no legal effect, which means your estate may not pass to who you want it to. We can provide practical legal guidance in simple terms, helping you to make sense of this often complicated legal process.

Our knowledgeable solicitors are also on hand to administer your will in the event of your death, helping your executors to apply for a Grant of Probate from the High Court of Justice.
Administering an estate requires knowledge of the laws of property, succession and trusts, as well as the implication of Inheritance and Capital Gains Taxes. Our experience enables us to administer the estate quickly, efficiently and without complication.
By making a will, you can ensure that your estate and the gifts you wish to pass on to your loved ones in the event of your death are administered to them at the right time. A will can also be a way of reducing the amount of tax you pay, including Inheritance Tax.
If you do not make a will, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the rules of intestacy, meaning the law will dictate who will benefit from your estate. The law relating to intestacy does not recognise common law spouses or step children; as such, if you die intestate, your common law spouse or stepchildren will get nothing.
Administration of an estate is often complicated and dying intestate will only put further stress on those who are left behind. The legal process is more involved and therefore more expensive.
The will writing process may seem complicated initially, but if approached correctly, it can be stress-free and efficient. We have produced a guide exploring the process of making a will, which can be viewed here.
