Probate

WILLS

The preparation of a Will is an important act that provides advantages to both its creator (the “Testator”) and to beneficiaries alike. A Will allows a Testator to dictate the devolution and division of his/her property and assets in accordance with his/her wishes. In the case of an Intestacy (where a person dies without having made a Will) property belonging to a deceased person will be divided according to the law of intestacy, as set by the State, and this can often lead to disposals in direct opposition to the deceased’s wishes. Planning a Will also gives a Testator the opportunity of obtaining tax planning advice, to ensure that his/her bequests can be dealt with in the most tax efficient manner for all of those involved. The process will allow for special plans to be made for family members, such as minors with careful thought and foresight. Furthermore, the administration of an Estate is far quicker and less expensive when a Will has been executed. If you own property or other valuable assets, it is strongly advisable that you create (and regularly update) a Will. Whether you require a simple and straightforward Will or complex tax advice in relation to an extensive estate, we can provide you with comprehensive advice and guidance. We can also assist you with:

The creation of Trusts

The appointment of Executors

The appointment of Guardians

Changing an existing Will
