Making your Will

Legal advice with a difference…

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are”

MSP Will Services

Our Private Client Team has all the expertise you need to make provision for your Will. Creating a Will is an important part of ensuring your wishes are fulfilled and your assets are passed on to members of your family, friends or chosen charities.

If you do not leave behind a Will, intestacy rules come into play and your assets will be divided in accordance with the law, rather than your wishes.

With our help, you will be able to relax knowing your estate will be divided in the way you hoped, without ambiguity and the worry of it being contested in court. Our experience covers family provision, trusts for dependents, care of pets, funeral arrangements and family heirlooms. We are also able to advise you on saving thousands of pounds of inheritance tax.

Our specialist lawyers can help you with a deed of variation of a Will or intestacy. Many people look to deeds of variation as an tax-efficient way of gifting assets to the next generation or another dependent.

We will carefully consider all aspects of the proposed variation and discuss them fully with you, paying particular attention to the possibility of using trusts to their full effect to achieve maximum tax efficiency and flexibility where infant or vulnerable beneficiaries are concerned.

Don’t delay – deeds of variation are only accepted by HMRC as effective if entered in to within 24 months of the death of the original deceased.

Our Private Client Team is highly experienced in this area and will happily guide you through this process. Please give us a call on 01429 232204 to discuss your needs or email: or
