Making a will
The Gordon Daniel soliciting team have years of collaborative experience in Will and Probate matters. We offer outstanding will and probate products in Portsmouth. Our expert solicitors provide a bespoke service, tailoring their approach to fit you and your priorities.
We spend our lives working to provide for our loved ones and ourselves. By making a will you ensure all of your money, property investments and possessions- your ‘estate’- are shared according to your wishes when you die.
Without a Will the law dictates what happens to your estate in the event of your death. These decisions may not be in line with your wishes. Having a will therefore ensure that you get your say on your “estate” when you are no longer here. It is therefore essential that you use an experienced solicitor to draft your will, this is particularly relevant if you have a complicated family set-up or if you have oversea assets.
Why do I need a solicitor?
- To make sure all your assets are accounted for
- A solicitor will take into account a beneficiary
- Solicitors understand the formal requirements needed to make a will legally valid
Amending my will
You may wish to amend your will due to changing circumstances. To amend your will, you can either make a new one or make a codicil for your existing will. A codicil is a legal document that is separate from your will, it consists of subsequent minor additions or amendments. Broadly speaking, a codicil is used to alter smaller assets as opposed to your main assets.
At Gordon Daniel, we understand that making a will is a very sensitive and personal matter, which is why our expert soliciting team offer a bespoke service. Our Portsmouth based solicitors modify their approach to suit you and your priorities, they also have the expertise to deal with sensitive enquires accordingly, establishing a solution that works best for you.
