Wills

Choose who will benefit from your estate

Writing a will makes tough times a bit easier

People want to make sure their loved ones benefit from their estate when they pass away. Writing a will is an essential part of ensuring your wishes are carried out when you are gone.

Will writing is one of those things that people often put off. However, there could be serious consequences should an individual die having not made a will; this is known as intestate.

International estate planning can be very complex. Individuals with assets in more than one country sometimes do not realise that they need to make two wills. Ultimately, this could mean that your beneficiaries could lose out entirely on any legacy you intend to leave behind.

The laws around wills can be complicated. There have been cases where wills have been successfully challenged in court. For that reason, great care needs to be taken when drafting a will to ensure that it is legally watertight.

Using a will writing professional is recommended. Having a professionally drafted will in place can provide peace of mind knowing that your intended beneficiaries will benefit from your legacy.

Remember, a will can be amended or re-written at any time to reflect any changes in circumstance or intention.

At Holborn, we work with clients to ensure their estate is in order and their will complies with local as well as international laws and regulations.
