Wills and Probate at Leeds Day Solicitors
Without a Will your estate will pass to individuals under the rules of intestacy which may not reflect your wishes. It is, therefore, extremely important that you have a Will in place and review it regularly to ensure that your affairs are up to date.
Similarly it also important to consider the issue of appointing individuals, whether that be friends, family or a professional, to look after your property and finances and health and welfare matters if you are unable to do so yourself during your lifetime.
At Leeds Day we are dedicated to offering clients a simple, clear and effective service whether it be planning and safe guarding for the future or dealing with the loss of a loved one. We will guide you through the difficult months after a bereavement, help you to ensure that the wealth you have worked so hard to build up passes on to whomever you want to benefit, and if the day comes that you are unable to look after your own affairs that the person doing it on your behalf is someone you have chosen to do so.
