Will Writers in Devizes, Wiltshire

Here at Whitebrook Wills & Trusts, we have been drawing up wills for Devizes residents for around 20 years, so we are all too aware of the reasons why wills are so important – and the sometimes heartbreaking consequences if you die without one in place.

Our professional consultants are all fellows of the Institute of Paralegals, trained not only in the finer points of testamentary law, but also well aware of the need for discretion in drawing up your will.

We are happy to visit clients in Devizes and the surrounding areas at home, or in their workplace, to turn their wishes into a legally-binding will. We also provide a document storage facility, which is an added convenience for Devizes residents whose families will know that the Will is safely stowed within easy reach.

Here at Whitebrook Wills and Trusts we were most concerned to hear from the Wiltshire Citizens Advice Bureau that there has recently been a sharp increase in the number of queries they are receiving about intestacy in Devizes and other towns in the County.

According to a BBC report the Wiltshire CAB had 1,522 queries concerning dying without a will in 2011, but by 2015 this figure had risen to 3,747, along with an increase in people consulting the CAB with problems executing wills.

A fair proportion of those queries came from Devizes, where many bereaved relatives are faced with having to deal with the consequences of their loved ones having died without making a legally binding will.

Having been in the business of preparing wills for all sorts of people in Devizes and other parts of the West Country for many years, the consultants at Whitebrook Wills and Trusts are all too aware of the heartache and distress that can result when someone dies without having made a will to record their final wishes.

Where there is no will, complex Intestacy Rules apply to the division of the estate left behind, and these are not always straight-forward. Disputes and breakdowns in family relationships have resulted, and even cases where partners and spouses have been left in financial need.

It’s often wrongly believed, for example, that if there is no will the surviving spouse of a deceased person will automatically inherit their entire estate. This doesn’t necessarily happen though if the estate is worth more than £125,000. There are all sorts of familial criteria and rules that come into play.

All the complications and pitfalls can be avoided simply by taking the time and trouble to have a will written and witnessed by a professional from a specialist legal firm like Whitebrook Wills and Trusts.

Devizes is one of the Wiltshire towns that we cover from our base in Warminster, and our consultants are prepared to visit clients at home or at work, if you wish, to draw up a will.

We quote you a fee up front to deliver our service in Devizes, and there will be no “hidden extras”.

In not much more than an hour you could have a will in place and feel confident that your estate – large or small – will be left to a person/s of your choosing, in the hands of an executor you trust, with probably a saving on inheritance tax to boot!

Having a valid will is everyone’s duty because it brings peace of mind for yourself and your family.
