“Two thirds of adults in the UK have not made a Will”
Many people are put off from making a Will as they simply don’t have the time (and money) for multiple trips to a solicitor’s office, or they don’t have the knowledge to ensure their wishes are adequately reflected on their Will document. Traditionally, when people decide to make a Will they either have to use the services of a qualified solicitor or try to make their own using basic forms from the post office. It’s no surprise then that two-thirds of adults in the UK have yet to make a Will.
However, you can now create a legally-binding Will document at a time to suit you, and without the need for time-consuming (and expensive) solicitor’s appointments. At Consumer Care we make the act of writing a Will simple and straightforward. You will find that Consumer Care delivers value for money that you won’t find from our competitors, and that our focus on customer service ensures that you will always be satisfied with the Will writing services you receive.
When you make a Will with Consumer Care, one of our Will writing specialists will guide you through the process without using confusing legal jargon or technical terms. One of the friendly Will experts will try to gather an understanding of your current circumstances to make sure that the Will you receive is suitable for your needs and that it reflects your wishes now and for the future.
Making a Will with Consumer Care means that you can:
appoint legal guardians for your children
help to prevent family disputes – especially relevant with extended or step families decide how your assets are divided – without a Will, the law decides who receives what
make sure loved ones are provided for – currently unmarried partners, friends, step-family would receive nothing unless stated in a Will
reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax recovered by the tax man on your estate
When making a Will, you can reduce the Inheritance Tax (IHT) to be paid on your estate and ensure that loved ones do not receive a hefty bill from the taxman. There are many ways to mitigate your IHT liability, which can be factored into your wishes when making a Will. Please call Consumer Care on 0800 088 4660 to discuss potential ways to reduce the Inheritance Tax that is paid on your estate.
Making a Will is increasingly important these days, as many modern family arrangements are significantly different to 1925 when the law on Wills (the Rules of Intestacy) was developed. The Rules of Intestacy do not currently recognise step-family as such – only recognising natural and adopted family for the purpose of inheritance. Without a Will, step children, step parents, step brothers and sisters would not benefit from your estate.
Family disputes can be avoided by making a Will, as even a small gift can provide clarity on your wishes (as to who should receive what) and can show that loved ones have been adequately considered – preventing arguments and potential action from escalating.
By making a Will with Consumer Care, you can appoint legal guardians to look after children in the unfortunate event that you die before they reach 18. Without a Will in place the Court decides who should look after them, which may not be the person you would choose – in some cases this may result in children going in to care whilst a suitable guardian can be found.
