Most people in the U.K. do not have a will. We all know that we should plan ahead, but so many of us fail to do so. This can complicate matters for your family and loved ones when you die.
At Hockfield & Co. in South London, we provide a cost-effective service where we draft a will tailored specifically to your needs. A professionally drafted document provides you with the peace of mind that it is valid and accurately reflects your precise wishes.
Our Probate And Estate Administration Service
When someone dies, his or her affairs must be dealt with. Our specialist team includes Lucy Jackson, a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) with extensive experience in this area of law.
We understand that the period following the death of a loved one is a traumatic and difficult time. The probate process can lead to uncertainty because institutions like banks, building societies, insurance companies and the Inland Revenue all need to be contacted before matters can be finalised. We offer a supportive and sensitive service, keeping you fully informed of progress and ensuring that all matters are dealt with as efficiently as possible.
How To Contest A Will
The contents of a will may be challenged, either because a family member or dependent believes he or she has not been adequately provided for or because the will was not made properly, such as a “homemade” will, for example.
If you wish to challenge a will, we can advise you on your prospects of success and, where appropriate, begin proceedings on your behalf. We are also experienced in defending estates against such challenges.
