Wills, Probate and Inheritance Tax
Solicitors for Wills, Probate and Inheritance Tax, based in Canary Wharf.
Making a Will
A carefully written Will protects your family and loved ones, and is essential if your property and personal possessions are to be passed to your chosen beneficiaries after your death.
Whether you are married or single, have children or perhaps are a business owner, our expert solicitors will help you consider your options before drafting a Will. This is to make sure it reflects your particular circumstances and responsibilities. We can also help you update your Will as your life and circumstances change.
Inheritance Tax planning and Inheritance Trusts
If your estate (money, possessions and property) is worth more than £325,000 at your death, it will be taxed. There is a tax-free threshold of £325,000, after which inheritance tax is payable at 40%, unless these assets are left to your spouse or a charity. We can advise you on inheritance tax planning to reduce your liability, an important consideration when drafting your Will.
Probate and Administration of Estates
Probate is the legal process of dealing with and distributing someone’s estate after their death. The administration of an estate involves assembling the deceased’s assets and dealing with HMRC. This is supervised by your chosen executors who are responsible for carrying out your wishes as specified in the Will. Paperwork and tax forms can be complicated and at these distressing times may be overwhelming. We can manage some or all of the probate on behalf of your executors.
