Will Writing

Based in Cardiff, Loosemores Solicitors aim to make will writing a prompt, professional and stress-free process.

The only certain way to ensure that your spouse, partner or relative inherits what you intend is by making a will.
Despite the importance of having a will, many fail to correctly prepare one.

A badly drafted will can have unintended consequences that may lead to difficulties for your loved ones after you pass away, it is important that you use a reputable and qualified Loosemores practitioner to prepare a will that meets your needs.

Did you know?

– Without writing a will, loved ones including non-married partners have limited rights and are often left with nothing.
– In most circumstances a will that has been made prior to marriage or civil partnership is automatically revoked.
– You can use a will to appoint guardians to take care of your children.
– It is a common misconception that assets are automatically passed to a spouse or civil partner. This is not always the case.
– A will can be used to reduce the amount of inheritance tax that is payable.

Already have a will? 

We recommend your will should be reviewed every three to five years or at any time when your circumstances change.
Your will should be reviewed and updated following these circumstances:

– Marriage or civil partnership.
– Divorce or separation.
– Birth/adoption of a child/grandchild.
– Property transaction.
– Retirement.
– If any executor named in the will dies.
– A substantial change in the value of your estate

We understand that writing a will can be a daunting thought. Our specialist lawyers offer a one-to-one service, providing practical advice whilst guiding you through each step of the process. We also offer home visits when possible.
