Wills & LPA Price Lists
Most of us have some wealth to leave behind. Most of us know who we want to leave it to. If you die without a Will (‘intestate’) then your estate passes to your next of kin, who can decide how to dispose of it. However if you don’t want to leave it to chance (and want to leave specific bequests) e.g. jewellery to a favourite niece, £100 to the local cats-home, a piece of silver to the next-door-neighbour who looked after you – then it’s best to have it written down.
Any lawyer will advise you to draw up a Will and leave your affairs in order ‘for the avoidance of doubt’. At Mancini Legal, we’re no exception and our friendly local team will make sure your wishes are noted correctly. We are also happy to act as executors and make sure your wealth ends up where you want it to.
If you have a significant estate it is also worth talking to our Trust team to see how you can best protect your wealth from inheritance tax and people that you do not wish to benefit from your wealth after your death.
