Wills, Probates & Estates Carmarthen

When we pass away we obviously leave behind our loved ones and friends. They will naturally grieve for us. It is vitally important that you take the time to contact a solicitor to make the necessary preparations for those you love, and draw up a legally binding Will. One that clearly states; what you wish to happen to your assets, who you want your beneficiaries to be. Not leaving a Will can make an awful situation even more difficult and upsetting.

More than half of the adult population in the UK do not have a Will. That means that in all of those cases their loved ones will be forced to spend time, and money they may not have, on sorting out their affairs after they pass away.

Some people believe that everything they own will automatically transfer to their next of kin when they die, but that is not the case!

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Wills and Probate FAQs

Does Everyone Need a Will?

A

Yes. A Will sets out your final wishes and makes it clear how you want any assets divided between your beneficiaries. Without a valid Will it becomes the responsibility of the state to make those decisions and the things you have worked so hard for can end up with a relative you have never met, instead of who you would have wanted to inherit your estate.
You can also set out practical instructions about funeral arrangements such as whether you wish to be cremated or buried. A Will ensures that your assets are distributed amongst family, friends or charities, as you want them to be.

What is a valid Will?

A

A Will is not valid unless it has been signed; however, there are certain rules about signing the Will that must be observed to ensure it is valid. One example of a rule is that a witness cannot be a beneficiary of the Will. It is vital to know these rules and adhere to them, otherwise, the whole of the Will could be found invalid or the contents challenged.
