Wills, Trusts & Probate North London

Trying to understand Wills, Trusts & Probate can be a complicated and confusing process. Fahri LLP believe in taking the burden away and advising you in simple terms how to balance emotional, financial and legal considerations during what we understand may be difficult times.

With two thirds of the population in the UK dying intestate (without having made a Will) it is now more than ever necessary for you to protect family wealth and limit adverse tax implications.

A Will is essential in life if you want to protect loved ones after your death and distribute your money and belongings amongst those you wish it to go to and not to those the law deems entitled. Not making a Will could see your assets distributed in a way that you may not have approved of, especially in the case of unmarried couples, parents and divorcees while also increasing the Inheritance Tax.

We can help you prepare tax efficient estate planning to ensure that your current assets are protected from one generation to the next, knowing the intricate details of the Inheritance Rules, possible exemptions and reliefs. It is our promise to take this essential task and make it stress-free and to work together until you’re satisfied with the end result.

Writing a will does not have to be time consuming or costly. We offer a cost-effective, efficient and friendly will writing service to help you plan ahead. At the outset we will discuss your family and financial situation and how best we can help. We will ask you about a full range of issues such as the suitability of executors, guardians for your children and trust provisions, anticipating changes which will inevitably occur over the years. We know that writing your will is a personal and often sensitive matter and you can be sure that everything you say to us will be in total confidence.

Checking & updating your will

If your will was written some years ago, or your circumstances have altered, it may be necessary for your Will to be amended.

Recent case law has shown the need to regularly check your will to make sure that it accurately reflects your wishes. Not only can these change over time, but it is possible that your wishes were misunderstood at the drafting stage, as happened in this case. If someone dies and this has happened, it may not be possible to have the will rectified and it will inevitably involve unnecessary expense and delay.
