Ensure that your assets are passed on correctly

It is extremely important that, whoever you are, you review your current will arrangements and legal documentation because of the new Residential Nil Rate Band legislation. The rules appear to be simple on the surface, but the detail is rather more complex.

We live in a world where there is a considerable lack of family stability; this often causes emotional upset and financial hardship. It’s important to ensure that your assets are passed securely to your loved ones and not to others you may prefer not to benefit, but who may have a claim in the event of a poorly-drafted or non-existent will.

We provide the advice that families and businesses require BEFORE they draft their wills, tax planning, trusts, shareholder agreements and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Three companies, one key link
