Wills, Probate, and Power of Attorney
If you do not make a Will, it is assumed that you would want your nearest relatives to inherit your estate. This may not be what you would actually wish, and may result in large and unnecessary inheritance tax bills.
For example, many married couples leave their entire estate to a surviving spouse. There is no inheritance tax charged at this point, but when the survivor dies, the beneficiaries might pay more tax than necessary.
This is one reason why professional, independent advice should be obtained and you should not rely on a homemade will, nor put off making a will altogether.
Canning & Company offer inexpensive will drafting by qualified lawyers.
We can provide help and advice including information on how to complete the Probate, Inheritance Tax and Property transfer forms.
We also offer a full Probate or administration service whereby no interviews
with the Probate Office or Probate Registry are necessary. Your involvement can
be kept to a minimum but you can still have as much input as you feel
appropriate, thus relieving you of the endless paperwork and pressure from deadlines set by the Inland Revenue. We give you the time you need to effectively
deal with the emotional strain of having lost a loved one.
