With today’s busy lifestyle, it is easy to overlook making a will and yet you can do it quickly, given the right legal advice and assistance. The consequences of dying “intestate” or without leaving a will can be devastating for your loved ones, especially if they receive only a fraction of what you wish them to receive. A will is only a document of intent and it does not come into effect until you die. Before then, you can always change its terms and even revoke it. It offers flexibility and control, as opposed to an outright gift or transfer during your lifetime. We are able to offer legal advice only, not taxation, and you must seek and rely on advice from your accountants and tax specialists only. We will help you to record your gifts in writing and appoint the persons you trust to handle the distribution.
We can also assist in the administration of the deceased estate by first obtaining a grant of representation from the Probate Registry, and then collection of assets, payment of debts and finally distribution. We also assist the personal representatives in avoiding personal liabilities.
We can assist in other personal and family matters and you will benefit from our efficient and friendly services.
