Will Lawyers & Solicitors

A Will or Tes­ta­ment is a legal dec­la­ra­tion by which a per­son, the Tes­ta­tor, names one or more per­sons to man­age his/​her Estate and pro­vides for the trans­fer of his/​her prop­er­ty at death.This is usu­al­ly done with a Wills Lawyer to ensure it is legal­ly com­pli­ant. In the strictest sense, a Will” has his­tor­i­cal­ly been lim­it­ed to real prop­er­ty while Tes­ta­ment” applies only to dis­po­si­tions of per­son­al prop­er­ty (thus giv­ing rise to the pop­u­lar title of the doc­u­ment as Last Will and Tes­ta­ment”), though this dis­tinc­tion is sel­dom observed today. If you die with­out a Will (“Intes­tate”), then the law will dic­tate who amongst your rel­a­tives receives what, which may mean rel­a­tives you do not like or have not seen for years and is why appoint­ing a Wills Solic­i­tor can be of great benefit.

Read the Intes­ta­cy Rules

There is a com­mon mis­ap­pre­hen­sion that a Will is not essen­tial for Hus­band and Wife as a sur­viv­ing Spouse will receive the whole of the deceased’s Spouse’s Estate, but this is incor­rect. The sur­viv­ing Spouse will in cer­tain cir­cum­stances only receive very lim­it­ed ben­e­fits and unmar­ried part­ners do not cur­rent­ly even ben­e­fit in this way. JBGass are able to advise clients on a solu­tion for their spe­cif­ic needs. We are expe­ri­enced in han­dling mat­ters from the sim­ple to the com­plex in an effi­cient and friend­ly man­ner.
