Will writing

What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that tells people what you want to happen to your estate after you pass away.

It’s important to have a Will to make sure your wishes are understood and can be carried out by someone you can trust. Without one, your property and belongings could be left to someone you didn’t intend, or even to the state.

Why do I need a Will?

  • To make it clear who you want your property and belongings to be left to.
  • Without a Will, the law decides how your property and belongings are shared out.
  • It makes it easier for your loved ones to sort things out when you pass away.

What happens if you die without a Will?

Making a Will

Our Will referral service, provided by Skipton Trustees Limited and administered by Redstone Wills, can help you arrange a Will that's tailored to your personal circumstances. Each type of Will has a flat rate, no matter how long it takes or how intricate your Will is. All charges are clearly explained in the Tariff of Charges document below.

Updating a Will

If your circumstances have changed, you might need to update your existing Will. It’s also useful to review it every two to three years to make sure it’s still in line with your wishes and any changes to tax rules or other regulations.
