New Will Enquiry
Do I need a solicitor
Many people decide to make their will without a solicitor or download a template they find online. For some people, these can work and they are better than not having any will at all.
However, the law around what happens after you die can be quite complex. While most things can be put in your will, there are items which can’t. More importantly, there are laws which dictate that your spouse or civil partner and your children have legal rights over any estate.
Writing a self-sought will which contravenes any of rules or regulations or laws already in place, will likely lead to such a will being declared invalid. If that happens, it will be as if you died without having any will in place at all. The legal term for this is intestate.
In such a case, the law of succession can apply and your estate is distributed as set out in the Succession Act 1965.
Drafting a new will
- In engaging us to draft your will, we can discuss your specific needs and collate your wishes for what happens after you die. We will also discuss with you the difference between a “Simple Will” and a “Living Will”.
Your will does not come into effect until you die, and therefore cannot dictate your wishes should you fall ill or inform what medical treatments you want or do not want. A Living Will , sometimes called an Advance Healthcare Directive can be used to record your wishes in all those circumstances.
- In drafting your will, we can advise you on the most effective ways of achieving your wishes and you can relax knowing that the will you make will be valid.
- Once you are happy with the draft, we will have the will finalised.
- Our professional fee is currently €495 (plus VAT and Outlays) for this service.
