Why now is a good time to write your Will

As we have gone into lockdown and Christmas is fast approaching there has never been a better time to write your Will.  All Josiah Hincks offices will remain open and our staff are ready and willing to take your instructions so there is no reason to delay writing one of the most important documents you will ever sign.

Why is writing a Will so important?

Don’t leave it to chance, if you die without a Will your estate would follow the rules of intestacy and might not necessarily pass to the people you want it to.  You might want to leave items that you cherish to a specific friend or member of your family, or perhaps a charity that is close to your heart– unless you set these wishes out in a Will they would not happen.

If you have young children you need to appoint a guardian to care for them in the event of your death. Without a Will this decision could be made by the Courts and your children may end up with someone you would not have chosen.

If you have any questions or want to go ahead and give your instructions please contact a member of our Wills & Probate team. All contact details with direct phone numbers and emails can be found on our website, www.josiahhincks.co.uk. If you prefer you can also complete our easy to use on-line Will planner and book an appointment directly with one of our solicitors following the link on our website.
