Will Drafting Service

An alarming number of people in the UK today have not made a will, and this is likely to be reflected locally in the number of people who have not made wills in St Helens. A well drafted will ensures that when you die your possessions will be dealt with in accordance with your wishes. Those who die without making a will die “intestate”. What this can often mean to surviving partners and family members is that:

  • the spouse does not necessarily end up inheriting everything
  • an unmarried partner will not automatically receive anything from the deceased’s estate
  • children can be disinherited

The amount of upset that can potentially be caused is evidently catastrophic. If you are looking for a law firm to help you and your partner with your wills in St Helens, your first call should be to St Helens Law.

Probate

Probate is also known as estate administration and is, in a nutshell, the process of transferring legal title to property from the deceased, to the person detailed in the will or to the person stipulated in accordance with the intestacy rules.

If a person dies with a will, they will appoint an executor to administer their estate. If they die intestate it is possible that an administrator will be appointed to carry out the same duties. The executor or administrator(s) of the deceased’s estate are charged with the task of ensuring that this takes place. As one of the best and most experienced firms of probate solicitors in Merseyside, we would urge you to make a call to St Helen’s Law for advice and assistance on these matters, as soon as any problems or issues arise.
