£10.00 off Wills & LPAs during October – Book your free consultation today

Why should you have a will?

Nearly everyone should make a legally binding will. If you have children or other family who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family, it is important to write a will.

You could write your own will if your wishes are fairly simple and straight forward. If it is properly signed and witnessed by two adult independent witnesses at the time you sign your will, it should be legally binding. Sometimes, however, there have been cases where the will doesn’t follow general rules for what is said and how it is said, and this may cause confusion which could result in your wishes not being following, or even that your will isn’t valid.

Why use a Solicitor to draw up your will?

For peace of mind, you may prefer to use a Solicitor to draw up your will, so giving you reassurance that your will is legally-binding, is not ambiguous and contains no mistakes that could otherwise result in unintended consequences and loved ones missing out on their inheritance.

We also advise you use a Solicitor if your instructions are going to be more complicated. This could be the case if you are not married, you run a business, you have assets overseas or have complex family affairs.

At Watson Thomas Solicitors, we have a team of experienced, compassionate family lawyers who are dedicated to ensuring those you love are the ones who will inherit your assets.
During the free initial consultation, we can advise you on making the most effective choices. Once the will is drawn up, we can store your will in a fireproof safe free of charge at our offices in Fleet, Hampshire.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

If you appoint a Lasting Power of Attorney you are appointing someone you trust to look after your property, finances and general affairs in the event that you are no longer able to manage them yourself. Your LPA will have the power to decide on issues such as where you will live, your care and your medical treatment.

Watson Thomas Solicitors have offices in Fleet, Hampshire and Guildford, Surrey
