Isn’t there something more fun to do than make a will?
Who actually looks forward to going to the dentist?
Most of the time, it is an uncomfortable experience with a high price – and that is just for a check-up!
Yet most of us still go, because we accept that keeping our teeth healthy and getting them checked regularly is better in the long run – and less expensive than sorting out a problem later.
Much the same can be said for putting a Will in place. Nobody likes to think about dying and leaving their family behind, but mortality is inevitable.
At LCF Law, we have seen many distressed families where a loved one has died, either without a valid Will, or with a Will that hasn’t been updated following a change in circumstances.
Not only can this leave a costly legal mess to sort out, but sometimes the assets pass to next of kin who never even met the person who has died.
Pain Free Promise
Making a Will doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive. We offer fixed prices, and will send you information to consider in advance of an initial meeting.
In most cases the Will can be completed within 3-4 weeks of the initial enquiry.
If your circumstances are complex or inheritance tax is an issue, we can talk through your options before you decide how to proceed.
We’re a friendly bunch of people, and (unlike the dentist), can promise that it won’t hurt!
