You can never prepare a Will too soon. Rather than being a morbid action, we view that it gives a sense of calm by ensuring that your wishes are carried out as you would like them.
If you do not leave a Will your estate will be distributed according to the appropriate legalities and although your spouse will have certain rights they will not automatically receive your entire estate.
Also if there is no Will, a relative would require to petition the court to have an executor appointed which incurs more fees and causes delay in winding up an estate.
So in short, Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do – after all you want to ensure that when you have gone your assets pass to the right people.
For decades, Bready & Co, have been supporting people at the difficult time of bereavement. When you are trying to cope with the death of a relative it can be overwhelming dealing with the administration of the deceased person’s estate.
When a loved one dies, it is essential that you get good, clear, and accurate advice on what to do next.
Whether there is a Will or not, we can guide you every step of the way, identifying assets, dealing with the court procedures, realising the assets and advising on distribution.
Our aim is to take some of the burden from you and offer support and guidance at what can be a sad and difficult time.
