Making a Will

It is the responsibility of every adult to make a Will. This responsibility applies to husbands and wives, couples who are living together, young people and old people, and people who are single. It is particularly important to make a Will if you own property or other assets, or if you have children from one relationship or perhaps from several relationships.

If you die without having made a Will then you leave behind for your loved ones a situation of great uncertainty and many unnecessary problems. Here are some key points for you to carefully consider :

  1. The loved ones you would have wished to benefit from your Will, if you had made one, may in fact now receive absolutely no benefits at all from your estate;
  2. The loved ones whom you would have wanted to look after any of your minor children may not in fact be entitled to do so
  3. The loved ones whom you would have wanted to be able to continue to live in certain property owned by you may not in fact be able to do so
  4. The loved ones whom you would have wanted to continue to receive the benefits of your previous pension may not in fact be able to do so

You will potentially cause great conflict between, and great expense for, all the loved ones you leave behind, at a time when they are least able to cope. Your own wishes may not in fact be carried out at all. It is true that solicitors make much more money out of unraveling Estates where there is no Will then they ever do dealing with Estates where the deceased has been prudent enough and responsible enough to make a Will.

There is really no question that it makes sense to have an up-to-date Will.

What our clients say

Don't take our word for it...

A big ‘thank you’ Richard from Steve and myself. Your time and attention you gave to both of us was remarkable. I’ve had dealings with many solicitors over the years, but have never received this level of service as you gave.

Mrs R – West Malling, Kent

A devastating event brought us to call on Laker Legal. We were put in touch with Mr John Hirst, and from the first moment we spoke to him we knew everything was going to be ok. Mr John Hirst, was always on the end of the Phone or Email, Kept in touch with us 100% of the time, and the support we received took so much pain off our family. All i can say is Thank you so much for everything you did for us.

Ms P - Maidstone

Thank you so much Richard, you have been so kind and patient with me when I have been at about the lowest point of my life after losing my wife, I can never thank you enough. I will also let my family know my wishes that Laker Legal Solicitors deal with my estate when that time comes.

Mr Y, Addington, Kent.

Best conveyancing experience ever. After two supposedly good law firms failed to even do the basics post instruction, for nearly 8 weeks, Jess at Laker Legal took on the difficult challenge of overseeing my purchase and completion in record time. Always proactive, very knowledgeable of her subject and extremely good communicator. I never had to chase the firm for anything. They always answered my calls efficiently. I can't praise them enough. What a wonderful experience.

I recommend Jess and would be very happy to use her again in the future.

Mrs A, Lancaster.

I can highly recommend John Hirst at Laker Legal solicitors in Lancaster. He was superb from start to finish dealing with a very complex child arrangements case for me. A really decent guy and an excellent family law solicitor who genuinely cares about his clients. John was fully up to speed with my case at all times and we got the outcome we wanted.

Ms. W of Leyland

I am very pleased with Laker Legal firm, my Solicitor John Hirst, was extremely helpful throughout the drawing of my prenuptial agreement. A very professional and knowledgeable approach yet warm,and friendly enough to feel comfortable with in a situation that can be quite uncanny to discuss or uneasy as per say. Thankyou again!

Mrs V – London

I used the services of Jess and the team at Laker Legal as a first time buyer looking for properties to buy, near and around Bath.

Jess was fantastic, in her communication during the process as well as her knowledge and ability during the conveyancing process. She helped me make informed decisions and ultimately find and purchase a wonderful home near Bath. Jess is adept at spotting potential issues during a purchase that I believe others may not.

She clearly excels at her craft and you will be in safe hands should you use her services too.
