If you do not make a Will, the law decides who will receive all your assets in accordance with strict rules. The rules may well not coincide with your own wishes.

Making a Will allows you to make financial provision for your partner and your family.

If you wish to leave certain items or sums of money to friends, relatives or charities then you can say so in your Will. If you need more information or advice about making a Will, talk to our Will writing Brighton based solicitors.


If you have young children you should appoint guardians to look after them in the event of your death. An appointment in your Will can save family disputes and ensure your wishes are carried out.

You may also want to provide for money to be invested until a child reaches 18 or some greater age. Our Will writing solicitors will advise you how best to provide for this in your Will. We can help you to appoint suitable Trustees and if required, provide the Trustees with investment advice.

Inheritance tax

You do not have to be wealthy to need a Will. With life insurance policies, property values, and some employment benefits, the value of your Estate may add up to quite a considerable sum. We can provide you with full tax advice and explain the effect of inheritance tax on your Estate.

Our expert Will writing solicitors can explain how insurance policies or trusts could help save tax and ensure that your assets are maintained for your family.

Lasting Power of Attorney

Just as important as making a Will is to ensure that if you are incapacitated through an accident or ill health, someone is able to look after your financial affairs, including paying bills on your behalf.

We can prepare, at a time when you are able to give the matter your full consideration, a Lasting Power of Attorney, appointing a suitable person to manage your affairs when you no longer feel able to do so.

Once the document has been completed and signed, it can be kept in our strong room and like an insurance policy it need not be used unless and until it is needed, if it is required, then the named person will be able to deal with matters on your behalf without the intervention of the Court of Protection or any other outside body. If you do not have a suitable relative or friend then a Partner of this Firm can act on your behalf.

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a simple, inexpensive but very effective document. We believe that every Client should have one - just in case.
