Having a will is the best way of ensuring that your wishes are followed after you die. A will helps your loved ones to follow your last wishes and enables you to choose where you would like your belongings to go.
Jarmans’ Wills and Probate team work closely with you to provide practical and supportive guidance for your end of life plans. We are able to advise on all sorts of wills, from the most basic where you leave your belongings to your spouse or partner to complex arrangements involving trusts, provision of business assets, and foreign elements.
Our aim for all of our clients is to not just provide a will, but also the reassurance that your wishes will be kept after your death and your assets will end up with the people or organisations that you choose. Where necessary, we also provide inheritance-tax planning advice.
One of the most important decisions for parents is the appointment of guardians to look after their minor children in the event of their deaths. We usually include guardianship provisions as part of your will, but we can also provide discrete advice about guardians, including drafting guardianship letters.
Trusts are sometimes used either to protect assets for vulnerable or young beneficiaries, or as a way to save tax. Clients ranging from property developers, high net worth business owners, and parents of disabled children come to us looking for trust advice. We can advise on both lifetime and will trusts, as well as being able to administer ongoing trusts on behalf of trustees.
Excellent service here. Needed a one off legal document and they were able to accommodate us the next day. We were given good advice. Highly recommend.
Thank you again for your help with my family matter, it was dealt with professionally and in a timely manner that helped push things along quicker so I could spend time with my children over the Christmas period.
