Wills and Estate Planning



Wills and Estate Planning

For many people the thought of preparing a will is too off putting to think about but having a will can actually bring comfort knowing that your wishes are properly documented and will be carried out by those appointed by you to do so.

In addition to setting out how you would like your property and any assets to be distributed, you will appoint a trusted person or persons as executor, appointing guardians and trustees to look after you child’s or children’s if necessary, making specific bequests to charities and indeed include funeral arrangements. If you choose not to make a will, or rely on a homemade will that may not be prepared correctly those wishes may not be carried out. We would advise you not to take that risk and contact our Wills and Estate Planning solicitors who are on hand to discuss your own particular situation with you to make sure your wishes are carried out as you intend.

We also provide advice to clients in relation to Estate and Succession Planning, particularly in relation family-owned businesses and farm partnerships to make sure they pass in as an efficient manner as possible. 

We also represent clients who may not have been properly provided for from a deceased person’s estate or if they have any other concerns regarding the administration of an estate.

We will need the following information from you before we can provide you with advice in relation to your Will:

Employment Law client.
I would like to thank everyone at RVW for their fantastic work, kindness and understanding especially after my calling up nearly every day. Professionalism beyond comparison is what was delivered at every stage and I was just bowled over with your support. At a time when things were very stressful and anxious (My late Mother's probate) I was always lent a sympathetic ear which was very much appreciated. I asked for complete support from RVW when I instructed them, I got much much more. I would without hesitation recommend RVW for their great support, fairness and transparency at every stage. Many thanks again you are just fantastic.
