Life is full of twists and turns and none of us can be sure what the future holds. By making a Will, you take away some of that uncertainty. Making a Will in not simply for the elderly or ill, but is sound financial planning for any family or individual.
For many of us, making a Will is something we know we should do but never quite get round to, leaving it languishing on our ‘to do’ lists. Of course, it’s important not to put it off and the good news is that at Burn & Co Solicitors, making a Will could be much quicker and easier than you think.
A Will places a legal obligation on the Executors or Trustees of the Will to act in accordance with your wishes. Often people assume that their money and possessions will automatically pass to their Partners or Children - but without a Will, this isn’t always the case as different rules, known as the ‘Intestacy Rules’ apply.
At Burn & Co Solicitors, our lawyers have in-depth knowledge in all areas of Wills and can help you create a Will that’s tailored towards the needs of you and your family. Our caring, friendly Lawyers will help to take the stress out of making a Will. They know what questions to ask and will guide you gently through the process. Whether your affairs are straightforward or more complex, our Will service ensures that your Will is valid and tailored appropriately to meet your needs. We can also store your Will safely - protecting it from loss or damage.
We understand that writing a Will can be daunting, it’s not easy to think about what may happen once you’ve passed away and the family and friends you may leave behind but making a Will ensures that they are cared for as you would wish them to be. Our friendly lawyers will put you at ease, explaining everything clearly and answering any questions you may have. We offer free first advice so you can have an initial chat with no obligation.

When my cousin died, as one of her Executors, I felt ‘thrown in at the deep end’ and bombarded with ‘offers of help’. It was only when my two co-executors agreed to contact Burn & Co that we could see a way through with honest information and fixed pricing. We are eternally grateful for your help, guidance and efficiency throughout – thank you and we would heartily recommend your services to our friends, etc.
