Welcome to ProtectMyEstate Wills & Estate Planning
ProtectMyEstate operating in Solihull, Birmingham and throughout the Midlands and Warwickshire specialise in Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning & Probate. We also provide advice on how to protect your family's estate from the threats of Inheritance Tax, Long Term Care, Divorce, Separation & Bankruptcy.
By making a Will you can decide what happens to your property and possessions after your death. Although there is no need to make a Will under the law, it is the best way to make sure your estate is passed on to family, friends and loved ones as you wish. If you die without making a Will (intestate), your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes and your family may be subject to large inheritance tax bills.
Incredibly, over 68% of the UK population have not made a Will.
The Importance of Making a Will
A Will sets out who is to benefit from your property and possessions (your estate) after your death. There are many good reasons to make a Will:
you can decide how your assets are shared - if you don't have a Will, the law says who gets what
if you're an unmarried couple (whether or not it's a same-sex relationship), you can make sure your partner is provided for
if you're divorced, you can decide whether to leave anything to your former partner
you can make sure you don't pay more Inheritance Tax than necessary
