At Bequeathed, we help you make your will in the way that best suits you.
You can make it yourself online for free, with support from our expert team. As most of us benefit from the important work done by charities, all we ask is you consider a gift in your will to charity.
Or you can start online for free and add cost-effective, valuable legal advice. Delivered face to face, after you’ve completed our online interview. By a quality-assured law firm. Like Cleaver Fulton Rankin.
Their solicitors offer advice from offices in Belfast. They also provide telephone and video services.
This option helps you make your legally valid will:
Single Will £Free
Please consider a gift to charity in your will.
This option gets you a will review from Cleaver Fulton Rankin:
Single Will from £200 +VAT
Couples from £400 +VAT
Up to one hour's advice. Only pay when you receive your will.
This option adds Lasting Powers of Attorney:
Single Will and 2 LPAs from £500 +VAT
Couples’ wills and 4 LPAs from £1,000 +VAT
Up to four hours' advice. Only pay when you receive your will and LPAs.
Though every will is correctly drafted through our software, you may want the additional reassurance of telling a solicitor what you want your will to achieve. They will ensure it does so.
You may want the firm to witness your will, so you know it’s done properly. You may also wish for them to store it securely for as long as you need, at no additional cost.
Or, you may have circumstances that create risks where advice will be even more valuable.
Whichever service level you choose to make your will, with or without legal advice, you do need to make it.
If you have a second family, you will want to be sure everyone is catered for.
Or maybe you wish to leave someone out of your will?
If so, you need legal advice.
Maybe you own multiple properties?
Perhaps you own a business?
This can have tax implications where legal advice will help.
What if you want more to go to beneficiaries and less to the taxman?
Or you want to think about future care fees?
A qualified lawyer can advise on this.
Inheritance rules abroad are different.
If you have assets abroad or live overseas with assets in the UK, you’ll definitely need legal advice.
If you die without a will, then the laws of intestacy dictate who gets what. That can mean the people you expect to inherit do not.
So you already know you need to make a will. That’s why you’re at Bequeathed.
But what happens if you lose the capacity to deal with your affairs or take decisions for yourself while you are alive? Due to dementia or disease or injury.
That’s when Lasting Powers of Attorney for (1) health and welfare and (2) property and financial affairs become vital.
Asking Cleaver Fulton Rankin to get LPAs in place now means:
Don’t wait until things become difficult. If you lose capacity, it’s too late. You don’t lose control of anything by making LPAs now. But you do retain control over what can happen in the future.
