Wills

A Will is a legal document that allows you to state what should happen to your assets when you die.  Without a Will, there is no guarantee your wishes will be carried out, or that your estate will go to those intended. 

Making a Will should be considered for many reasons and most commonly those reasons are to ensure that your wishes are reflected on death and gives you peace of mind as to the distribution of your assets. Other reasons to name a few can be for inheritance tax saving, appointing guardians for young children and setting up provision for a disabled child. At Scollan Property Lawyers we are very experienced in Will drafting and related advice and we can deal with small and complex estates. We are also a member of Certainty National Will Register which allows us to offer Will registration to all clients.

 Living Wills/Advance Statement



A Living Will otherwise known as an Advance Statement sets out your wishes usually in respect of potentially life sustaining treatment.

An advance decision should be made in writing and it is good practice to give a copy to your loved ones and all involved in your care.  Your GP and medical team must know about your advance decision so they can include it in your medical notes.  You should review it regularly, and you can change it at any time.  You must make sure that you clearly communicate and record any changes, being sure to date and sign it.  If you want to refuse potentially life-sustaining treatment your decision must be in writing, signed, witnessed, and include the statement ‘even if life is at risk as a result.’

Please telephone the office to obtain an instruction form or download the form  to complete and return to us to get started.
