Making a Will

Making a Will

At Brabazon Solicitors we have many years experience in drafting wills and we would be delighted to assist you and your family in planning your estate. Wills are there to make sure that if something happens to you, your money and estate will be divided according to your wishes.

While you do not have to make a will, if you die without making a will, your estate will be distributed according to the law on succession. This means that your estate will be distributed between your surviving family members in the way that is set out in law. This also happens when the will is not valid because it was not made properly. And when a legal challenge to the validity of the will has been successful. The law of succession also applies to assets which are not covered by a will such as where there is no residuary clause. The order in which your estate is distributed in these cases is set out in the Succession Act 1965.

If you want to have a say over who inherits all or part of your estate, you should make a will. You can also complete and keep an updated list of the things that you own. You should keep the list in a safe place.

We can advise you in relation to the taxation implications and any difficulties or pitfalls which may arise. We offer very competitive rates for drafting wills.
