A Will Writing Service for Families and Business Owners throughout the North East

 A Will Writing Service for Families and  Business Owners throughout the North East

 Every day 2000 people die in the UK and most of them leave their families without the guidance of a Will. 

 If you are 18 years or over now is the time to make your Will. The UK inheritance law lays down strict rules on how a person’s estate is divided if they have not made a legally valid Will. 

Common law partners and step-children have no automatic right to benefit from a Will. 

 This is as true in Morpeth as it is in   Sunderland! See the Rules of  Intestacy to learn more. Enigma’s professionally drafted Will Writing Service can protect not only your   wishes but the legacy you leave behind.

 The average cost of a Will is very small compared with the costs and emotional pressures of tying up your affairs after your death with no Will. 

More to Making a Will than Meets the Eye!

  • Making a Will is one of the most important personal decisions that you will make. Do not delay any longer contact us today from anywhere in England, Scotland or Wales.
  • Writing a Will is a very personal and important issue. Should a lifetime of work and choices be left for friends or relatives to decide upon? Will they follow your recommendations? Possibly not. Will the Courts remember a particular family item that was to be given to your close friend or a donation to charity that you always promised to make? The simple answer is NO.
    We have the freedom of choice as to who will inherit our possessions and assets in England and Wales and writing a Will ensures that these wishes are carried out.
    Sadly some marriages do end in Divorce or loss of a Spouse with assets intended for children lost through a second marriage? Protection can be found through writing a Will and the use of Trusts.
    Providing for your un-married partner through your Will ensures that they are financially catered for and may reduce the burden of Inheritance Tax.
