Estate Planning Specialists
TWB have been established for nearly 30 years and have always specialised in Will preparation; it is not an element of our business, it is our business.
The Will Bureau is at the forefront of its profession. Over many years our staff have established The Will Bureau’s (TWB) reputation for excellent service combined with sound practical advice and sympathetic attention to our clients’ needs.
You need a Will to ensure that your intentions for your estate are carried out, and that your heirs lose as little as possible in tax. Through the Wills we have prepared, we have saved our clients’ heirs many thousands of pounds, which would otherwise have been lost to the tax system. You are also helping your family by simplifying the administration of your estate and saving them time, unnecessary stress and costs.
A little known fact, making a Will is not a reserved legal activity; a solicitor is not required at all. However, the entire Will preparation process, from taking instructions to execution, is most definitely a legal process. As such, it requires specialist knowledge and experience of the law to safely deliver the level of competence and service required. TWB have been established for nearly 30 years and have always specialised in Will preparation; it is not an element of our business, it is our business. Moreover, our consultants and drafting team are all qualified and adhere to the highest industry standards.
Estate Planning is an integral part of our service. As well as minimising the effects of Inheritance Tax (IHT), many families wish to ensure the preservation of their wealth through several generations, making provision for children, whilst also considering events such as divorce, bankruptcy and provision for later-life care.
We have written thousands of Wills and helped countless clients with IHT planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) and other services.
You will find that TWB will fit our consultations around your working patterns, and that your fee will be fixed and all inclusive.
Once you have wisely made a Will, you will be reassured to know that TWB constantly monitor and research all developments in the law and tax relating to Wills, IHT and LPA. You will be offered regular reviews of your provision so that your estate is always prudently protected.
