Wills & Probate
Our Wills Solicitors in Leicester are highly experienced in dealing with all kinds of Wills (including Islamic Wills) and Probate work, ranging from the most straightforward cases with one beneficiary to highly complex cases with multiple beneficiaries.
You need to make a will to ensure your money and property is passed on to the people or loved ones you choose. If you don’t make a will, the intestacy rules apply. These are statutory rules which set out which family members will benefit on your death and in what proportions. If you have no family members then your assets go to the Crown. The intestacy rules do not recognise unmarried partners as family members (Civil Partners are recognised).
You need to make sure the provisions of your will are completely valid and the will has been properly executed. Instructing solicitors to prepare a will for you will ensure that your beneficiaries do not face any problems after your death.
P A Todd & Company Wills Solicitors in Leicester offer a friendly and sympathetic approach to Wills and Probate. We understand the physical and emotional distress a death can cause to family members so we work hard to ensure all legalities are met, the case is resolved quickly and the assets are distributed in accordance with the particulars of the will.
