Wills and probate
Most of us work hard to generate an income to provide for our family and want to ensure that our family are taken care of financially. Careful planning during your lifetime can save substantial sums in inheritance tax. We at Grace Solicitors can help you to plan legally and sensibly. To make the process even easier and more comfortable we offer a home service where one of our solicitors will travel to your home to have your Will executed if you live in County Kilkenny.
Making a will also has the following potential benefits:
• it ensures that your estate and your goods go to your preferred recipients and not those that current legislation dictates it should go to;
• you can ensure that your wishes, in relation to the guardianship of your children, are taken care of;
• you choose the executors who will attend to the administration and distribution of your estate.
• it avoids the complications that can arise if you die intestate
If a person dies intestate i.e. without making a will, that person’s property and possessions will pass in accordance with the rules of law under the Succession Act which may not reflect their wishes. The beneficiary may also incur inheritance tax which could have been avoided or reduced had advice been taken from a solicitor. Failure to plan in advance can lead to uncertainty and stress for loved ones and deny you the guarantee that your final wishes will be respected. Your will signifies a positive move towards putting your affairs in order. Although it may seem overwhelming, it is actually an easy and inexpensive process. Now is the ideal time to get in touch with us to ensure that your will reflects your wishes.
It is also a good idea to review your will every two or three years since circumstances, assets and requirements can change. We, at Grace Solicitors, have a vast expertise in the drafting and preparation of wills and indeed the administration of estates.
Our probate services involve guiding you through the whole process of dealing with a deceased person’s estate and making this as simple and straight-forward as possible for you
