Wills, Trusts and Administration of Estates

Writing a Will is the sort of job which is easy to put off, but it’s one of the most important things you can do. So don’t put if off any longer, contact one of Lanyon Bowdler’s friendly and approachable lawyers who can help make sure that your savings and assets go to the right people.

The cost of legal advice should not prevent you from getting your affairs in order, so we offer a range of pricing options - including fixed fees so you know how much everything will cost from the outset.

Will Writing Service

Whatever your age, wealth or marital situation, writing a Will is incredibly important. People often assume that their partner, children or grandchildren will automatically inherit their estate when they die - but it is seldom as simple as that.

Things get a bit more complicated if there has been a divorce in the family, and if you are not married or in a civil partnership, your partner may not end up with anything.

Remember - making a Will protects your wishes and avoids any disputes in the future. A Will is the best way of making sure your partner and children will be provided for in the event of your death.

Our Will writing solicitors are experts in their field and will guide you through the whole process from start to finish.
