Making a will with us does not have to be a daunting and complicated task. By instructing Henry Hyams to prepare your Will you will feel confident that your wishes are going to be carried out exactly as you intend them to be. Your case will always be handled by, or be closely supervised by, a specialist private client Director. 

Most people know that they should prepare a will, but generally put it off. It is not an issue that you want to think about.  However, a Will is a legal declaration that provides decisions as to what happens to your property and possessions after your death. If you do not have a Will your estate is divided according to the law and your wishes are disregarded.

There are of course other, more practical, reasons for making a Will: 

• Your choice of Executor 

• How you would like your funeral to be conducted 

• It allows you and your partner or spouse to make arrangements for the care of your children after your death. 

• If you and your partner are not married, you can ensure that your partner will be provided for. 

• If you have been divorced you can make a decision as to whether that former spouse receives any legacy.

• You can also choose to give a proportion of your money to a charitable organisation of your choice.

• Mitigation of Inheritance Tax 

If you feel that the contents of your Will are straight forward it may be tempting to use one of the many cheaper, impersonal online services available. If you decide to do this, you need to be aware that this could give rise to challenges to your Will after your death if there are any errors in drafting that you may be unaware of or the execution of the will has not been completed correctly. Inheritance tax can also be complicated and cannot be dealt with by a simple online “do it yourself” Will. 

We can provide personal expert legal advice that is bespoke to your individual circumstances. 

For a fixed fee of £250 plus VAT, for a simple will, we can ensure that you will feel confident that your wishes are going to be carried out exactly as you intend them to be.

We aim to provide a will writing service that also suits your busy lives :

• We can meet with you in person at our welcoming city centre office 

• Arrange a telephone appointment or Teams meeting to discuss your Will 

• Draft your will in accordance with your instructions and send this to you by email or post for your approval

• Once you have approved the Will we will make an appointment to meet with you to execute the will correctly 

• We will store your will securely for life, for free. 

We have been making Wills for our clients in Yorkshire and further afield since the firm was founded and we pride ourselves on our clear, straightforward advice and sympathetic approach to your matters.
