Will Writing

Making a Will may prove to be one of the most straightforward yet important financial decisions you make. You should ensure you have a valid Will. Without a Will, your assets and possessions will ultimately be distributed according to the rules of intestacy, meaning you have no influence over who receives the assets in your estate. Sorting out your affairs may also prove far more difficult. Making a Will is a straightforward process and will ensure your wishes are clearly documented and followed in full.

I had no idea until taking independent advice from Cockburn Lucas that my retirement options covered so many areas, and am really grateful for the professional and clear way in which these options have been explained. As you can imagine, the decision on how to take my pension was something I couldn’t afford to get wrong or take chances with, so I am grateful for all the help and expertise they have provided in dealing with my need for advice.
