Where there’s a Will … there’s peace of mind

Print Friendly

We’d all like to reach our retirement years and be in a position to relax, enjoy life, see friends, family and travel and there’s no doubt we’ll have earned it! With the advantage of having more time on our hands comes the opportunity to really make it count.

While there’s no substitute for leaving behind happy memories, it’s also a time to reflect on the material possessions and wealth we will have acquired during our lifetimes and make the appropriate plans, not just for ourselves, but in the interests of all those we love.

Create a will with www.makemeawill.com

Creating a will is one of the most important things we can do to ensure that when the time comes, our wishes will be carried out regarding how our assets should be divided and who we wish to act as our executors.

Dying without having a will or a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, will mean that ‘Probate’, whereby the partner or relatives have to apply for permission to deal with the deceased’s estate, may take longer. It’s also vital to have a will in place in order to help to minimise inheritance tax, especially if you have one or more properties, interests overseas or business assets.

www.makemeawill.com is a new website from the Beneficial Trust and Will Company (BTWC Ltd), designed to make creating a legally-binding will both simple and cost effective starting from just £39. Established in 1999 and an accredited member of the Society of Will Writers, BTWC is a trusted partner of estate planning specialists across the UK.

www.makemeawill.com is easy to use and will take you through the process step by step but if at any time you decide that your circumstances require a more personal touch, ask to speak to one of our professional advisors. Our aim is always to ensure that you will have a will that is 100% right for you and your family.

Funeral planning

As well as creating a will, BTWC can also help you to create your personalised funeral plan so that your wishes will be clearly laid out and all costs covered in advance. No medical is required and payment plans are available.
