Wills and Probate Services
A will is a legal document that allows you how to express how your assets are dealt with at death. You must be of sound mind and over the age of majority to make a will. There is no legal requirement to use a Solicitor to write your will but you should be aware of the many pitfalls that can occur in using a "home made" service, particularly with the legal position relating to witnesses to the will.
Probate is the legal process of administering a will and is issued by the Probate Court. This officially appoints the nominated Executors to carry out your last wishes as defined in the will document. Probate proves that your will is valid and can help prevent disputes between beneficiaries and others over how your assets are dealt with.
