Worthingtons Solicitors


A Will is a legal document that instructs how a persons’ estate should be distributed in the event of their death.

The main benefits of making a Will are as follows:

  • You choose who your assets go to;
  • You choose who deals with your affairs following your death;
  • You chose the legal guardians of your young children;
  • You can minimise Inheritance Tax;
  • Without a Will your assets could go to someone you would not want them to go to;
  • Having a Will avoids disputes about who is entitled to what following your death.
  • Gives you peace of mind of knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of after you are gone.

We recommend you review and update your Will every few years to ensure that its contents still reflect your wishes.

If you do not have a Will, the law will distribute your estate according to what is known as the rules of intestacy. These rules may not reflect what you’d like to happen to your estate, or what is most tax-efficient.

Our experienced and professional Probate team at Worthingtons can advise and guide you with making arrangements to protect your estate.
