Video: Wills, your commonly asked legal questions answered

Following on from our well-received video answering some of the most commonly asked questions about Divorce, we sat down with another of our solicitors to give the same clarity to the field of Wills.

In the video Sarah Nash, our Head of Wills, discusses what can be said in a Will, the problems that may come with making one’s own Will, when a Will should be reviewed, how remarriage will affect the Will of the parties in question, and if a Will can save Inheritance Tax.

As well as addressing these common concerns, Sarah explain the importance of making a Will. “If you don’t have a Will, the rules of intestacy will apply,” she says, “Those rules determine who will benefit from your estate so more often than not, the rules of intestacy will not distribute the estate as you want it to.”
