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
Dying without a will can cause untold pain to the families we leave behind. If you are looking for a law firm to help you and your partner with your wills in St Helens, the team at St Helens Law is always on hand.
You can now make a Will from the comfort of your home with our Online Wills service. Click here to visit our Online Wills page to find out how you can make your wishes known online, in three simple steps.
Probate is also known as estate administration. It is the legal process of transferring ownership of the money, property or assets of someone who has died.
If a person makes a will before they die, they will choose and appoint an executor to administer their estate. If they die intestate it is possible that an administrator will be appointed to carry out those duties. In either case, the executor or administrator(s) of the deceased’s estate are charged with the task of ensuring that the assets are transferred to the correct parties as outlined in the will, or in accordance with the intestacy rules.
