Wills & Probate Solicitors

Wills & Probate

Having a Will means that after your death your wishes as to how your estate and property will be distributed will be followed. If you do not have a Will then the Rules of Intestacy will apply and your estate and property will be distributed in accordance with those rules regardless as to whether those rules are fair to you and your family or what you might have wanted.

For very moderate fixed cost Clive Wood of CGW Law can prepare a Will for you and provide sensible and practical advice to minimise the potential Inheritance Tax burden on your estate after your death.

With modern technology and computer software a Will can be prepared during a single meeting which can take place in your home or office or even over the telephone. Your wishes as to the appointment of executors, as to specific gifts or money gifts and as to the rights of your surviving partner or spouse or children to remain living in your property after your death can be discussed and provision made in your Will which is prepared in modern English which you will be able to understand without a Law Degree!

Clive Wood of CGW Law is not a Financial Adviser and sometimes it is sensible for such independent legal advice to be obtained prior to your Will being prepared. Clive will work with your Financial Adviser to prepare a tax efficient and appropriate bespoke Will which meets all your needs and wishes.

Dealing with the administration of the estate of someone who has died can be complicated and CGW Law is here to help. Some clients just need some general advice and assistance. Other clients want the whole process dealt with for them. At a time of emotional sadness and loss the whole process can seem frightening and overwhelming and we at CGW Law can help to deal with the practical and legal issues that arise.

CGW Law charges only for the work done with no additional percentage of fees based on the value of assets in the estate. Our charges are transparent and an estimate of likely fees can usually be provided at an early stage.

Once again the advantage to clients of the option for meetings to be conducted in their home or office comes to the fore. You will not have to traipse to the solicitor’s office but Clive Wood will come to you…help you to sort out the documents and paperwork and take away only what is needed to deal with the legal and financial practicalities.
