London Will Writing Solicitors

Planning for the future often seems like something that can wait for another day. However, it is better to be prepared and have peace of mind in case an emergency occurs — you want to know your wishes have been clearly captured and will be respected.

At Ronald Fletcher & Co, our experienced will writing solicitors are available to help create comprehensive documents that meet your needs and wishes. We also help families when a loved one becomes incapacitated or passes away and the probate process needs to begin. Our services include representing parties if any disputes arise such as contested wills or estates.

Do You Need Help Making a Will ?

We not only help you draft out your will, but we can also help you update your will should your circumstances change. We provide detailed elderly client care, including the full range of other estate planning counsel such as helping execute and enforce powers of attorney. We also provide representation if you need to make an application to the Court of Protection when a loved one requires this type of court-supervised assistance.

Probate Solicitors

We know that the probate process is technical and can easily be confusing. We are here to help you understand what you need to know when applying for probate, including:

  • We will help you value the estate properly, collecting appraisals and other necessary documentation when appropriate.
  • Our solicitors will communicate with the deceased's banks and other financial organisations to establish whether a grant of representation (or confirmation) is needed.
  • If a grant of representation is required, we will help you complete the relevant application and required inheritance tax form. (The inheritance tax form will vary depending on whether or not the estate owes inheritance tax.)
  • We will complete and send out all necessary forms to the relevant government bodies, including the Probate Registry and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
  • We will ensure that the correct inheritance tax is paid timely.
  • We will appear on your behalf in probate court and other necessary venues.
  • We will pay any debts owed by the estate and then distribute the estate.
