While no-one likes to think of their own mortality, we provide a sensitive and straightforward approach to planning what happens to your property and possessions when you pass away.

We prepare Wills specific to your circumstances, however complicated you might think they are.

You will have a dedicated Will expert to guide you through the process.

We will provide free Will Reviews on Wills prepared by us included in the fixed fees and we are clear with our charges.


We provide safe and secure storage of Wills at NO COST and we will register your Wills with the National Wills Register.



Would the Will last me all my life?

Probably not.  As a result a Will needs to be reviewed regularly.  We suggest every 5 years or earlier if you want to change the Executors or beneficiaries.

Do I need a Will?

If you pass away without making a Will, the law will decide who will inherit from your estate under the intestacy rules.  If you are not married then it is likely that your partner will not inherit from your estate.  This is because the intestacy rules do not recognise co-habitees.

I am not married but intend to get married soon. Should I change my Will before the wedding?

Marriage automatically revokes a Will unless you have a clause in your Will which is made in contemplation of marriage to that person.  You should change your Will before the wedding unless this clause is already in place in your existing Will.

Should I keep my original Will?

Most solicitors will store your Will for free.  Waldrons do.  It is important that you know where the original Will is stored if you do not keep it yourself.  In addition, it is more complicated to use a copy of your Will to obtain the Grant of Probate when you have passed away.  The Probate Registry will need the original Will to check that it is valid.

Can an Executor of the Will also be a beneficiary?

Yes they can.  You can appoint any one over the age of 18 years to be an Executor.  It is a job that needs someone who is organised to be able to do it.

Can beneficiaries witness my Will?

No – they must not do this and nor should a spouse or civil partner of a beneficiary witness your Will.  If they do this, then they will invalidate their gift in the Will and it will not be payable to them.
