It is estimated that about 70% of UK’s population who should have a Will don’t have one. This can complicate matters for their loved ones because thousands of pounds can be lost in unnecessary tax payments, severe delays that could make it difficult for the family to release family assets once their loved one has passed away. We provide full range of Wills and Probate services to clients who want to experience a process that is painless and stress-free. We understand that people tend to wait until the last minute to make a Will, but we can help by urging them to take action today so that their tomorrow can be stress-free for their loved one once they have passed away.
There are several benefits to consider when deciding to make a Will, here are some:
- With a pre-defined, Will you can personally allocated your shares amongst your family and mention the percentage you want each member to have. On the other, where there is no Will the state decides where your assets will go.
- Make sure your children’s future is secure by allocating assets to their name and placing a guardian of your choice for their care.
- Ensure no further inheritance tax is paid than necessary.
It is important to regularly review your Will especially in cases such as divorce, marriage, starting a family, bereavement, retirement and moving properties. We at Asghar & Co will provide assistance and guidance on such matters so that you can exercise proper planning and review of your private assets resulting in a positive impact on your personal wealth and make future provision for your children much easier. We make sure to practice a professional and realistic yet sensitive approach when it comes to planning your Will. Much of our business in this area of law is either a result of recommendation from former or existing clients or repeat business.
