Barnes and Partners Solicitors

I am a Wills and Probate Solicitor. I am passionate about this area of law as I see all to often families left reeling from the fallout of a family dispute following a death. Listed here are some facts that everyone should be aware of:

1: Never assume your assets will automatically pass to your next of kin; even if you are married don’t assume your spouse will automatically inherit.

2: Good estate planning dramatically reduces the chance of a family fight over anything you own, including that beloved tea set or piece of jewellery both your children have their eye on.

3: Estate planning is even more important when you live together but are not married or in a civil partnership as your partner will not benefit from the same privileges and tax exemptions.

4: Beware of a home made will or will writing services. If a Will is going to be challenged then the Will writer will be asked to prepare a statement. A Will drafted by a Solicitor is made to stand up to a challenge before it reaches a costly Court room battle.

5: Blended families/2nd marriages can be a recipe for disaster – a Will is a necessity.

6: If you want something to happen it needs to be written down, you cannot rely on a verbal instruction.
