Will Writing

Many people find discussing and planning for death difficult, but you can protect your loved ones and their future with a little careful planning.

What is a Will

Your Will is a legal document prepared and drafted to carry out your wishes. The right Will ensures that your assets are passed to people you want and all of this is managed by the people you appoint, providing real peace of mind for your loved ones when you are not around.

Why you need a Will

The latest research conducted by Royal London found that 54% of the adult population in the UK do not have a Will. Six in ten parents either do not have a Will or their current Will is out of date. The importance of having a valid, up to date Will cannot be underestimated. If you die without a Will you die “intestate” and your estate will be shared out in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy. This situation provides daunting complications for your family and could result in your estate being passed to the wrong people or even taken by the Crown if no relatives can be traced.

Providing real peace of mind:

  • Appoint the right people to manage your affairs when you are no longer around
  • Name the people you want to pass your assets to
  • Appoint guardians for your children, making sure they will be looked after by someone you trust
  • Set out your funeral arrangements

Making your Will

A Will could provide real peace of mind for you and your loved ones…but why are we so reluctant to the idea of having one?

The answer is simple – we do not understand the full consequences of not having one. Some people might find it hard to think and talk about dying, especially with their loved ones. And some people simply don’t know where to start.

Traditionally to make your Will you have to go to a solicitor’s office or bank. This can be inconvenient and often expensive but making a Will doesn’t have to be complicated. Philips Trust offers free home consultations on a day and time that suits you and all at affordable fees. Our professional and friendly consultants will take your Will instructions patiently and empathetically and you will never feel rushed or pressured. We will discuss all the relevant options and will answer all questions you might have.

How to store your Will

It is vital that your Will is stored safely and remains in good condition until it is needed. A Will that is damaged, written on or not in good condition can be declared void causing severe problems for those left behind. Philips Trust provides safe and secure document storage services for all clients wishing to protect their important documents.

How to update your Will

It is important to review your Will from time to time to ensure it is up to date. Your Will has to be revised when your circumstances or circumstances of your loved ones change, this include life events such as marriage, divorce, birth of a child or death of a beneficiary.

Whether it is a minor alternation or significant changes to your existing Will our expert team will be happy to guide you through the process.

Our Trust administrator Fiona was most understanding of elderly people and our position. She made everything clear so we understood what to do next. Always pleasant and cheerful. Help beyond to exit from Trust with previous company as we were getting nowhere. True gold, 1st class.
