Wills and Inheritance

At Bright & Sons Solicitors we can provide specialist legal advice on all aspects of wills and the necessary tax planning to minimise the tax burden on death. Our wills and inheritance department can assist clients in Essex, London and throughout the UK.

Unfortunately more than 60% of those who die each year don’t leave a will. Therefore whatever your circumstances it is important to make a will. Without one, the law dictates who inherits your estate.

This may mean that those you leave behind are inadequately provided for and that your estate may pass to those whom you would not wish to be beneficiaries. Also, without a will a cohabitee has no automatic right to your estate.

Our will solicitors can provide information on:

  • How to provide for children from a previous marriage
  • Protection from care home fees
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • How to appoint guardians for your children
  • Who is to look after money for underage beneficiaries, and at what age you wish them to inherit
  • How to safeguard a disabled child
  • Succession planning relating to partnerships and companies whether these are farms or other types of businesses
  • Heritage assets
  • Overseas assets
  • Changing a will
  • Laws of intestacy

At Bright & Sons we can deal with all will and probate matters from the very small to the very complex offering a sympathetic and efficient service to those with the responsibility of dealing with the estate of a deceased person.

Many people are surprised how inexpensive it is to make a will - we are happy to discuss our fees in advance.

Your will is probably the most important document you will ever sign – let our team of specialist solicitors help you get it right.

We offer hospital and home visits. All our offices have free car parking and disabled access. For more information and general enquiries, please click here.
