Wills, Probates & Estates Stroud

It is difficult to imagine what life would be like after you have passed and, understandably, most of us try not to think about it. However, leaving a valid legal will is essential. Not leaving one in place can make an upsetting situation, for your family, much more difficult and troubling for the loved ones we leave behind. It could cost them a lot of money and stress.

To guarantee that your affairs are left exactly as you wish and that your loved ones are cared for, it is important that you take suitable legal advice to plan and submit a Will detailing your wishes for your family after your death.

Over half of the UK’s adult population do not have a Will. That means their loved ones will be forced to spend time and money to sort out their affairs, after they have passed away. Some people think that when they pass, all they own will automatically pass to their next kin, but that’s 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.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Wills and Probate FAQs

Does everyone need a Will?

A

Yes. A Will sets out your final wishes and clarifies how you want any properties divided between your beneficiaries. Without a legitimate Will it is the government's duty to make those decisions and the things you've worked so hard for will end up with a relative you've never met, rather than who you'd like to inherit your estate.

What is a valid Will?

A

A Will is not binding until it has been signed; however, other laws regulating the signing of the Will must be followed to ensure that it is legitimate.
