Though it’s not something many people want to contemplate, it is extremely important to ensure that in the event of your death, your estate is distributed in accordance with your wishes. Without a valid Will, your estate will be distributed using a fixed process determined by the government, causing possible further stress and grief to your loved ones. A valid Will not an option but a necessity.

At Legal Guru, we have a team of solicitors who specialize in this complex area of law. We can provide foolproof and comprehensive legal advice in the following areas:

  • Preparation of wills
  • Testamentary trusts

Wills are not just for the old and infirm. No matter how small your estate, a Will is necessary to ensure your final wishes are respected.

Alongside setting clear instructions as to what happens to the Estate of the deceased, a Will has many other purposes, including:

  • Appointing an Executor
  • Appointing Guardians for your children/property
  • Name the beneficiaries
