Wills & Probate

Are you looking for Wills & Probate in Lancashire? Dickinsons can help. Working across the Fylde Coast, Lytham, St. Annes and the surrounding areas.

The importance of having a will cannot be underestimated, yet many people still put off making one for various reasons. Some people believe that they are not wealthy enough to require a will, but this is rarely the case when the value of property and investments are taken in to account. Others believe that it is too expensive, but with straightforward wills drafted by us starting at just £80 plus vat, this is simply not the case.

If you do not make a will then no account is taken of your wishes upon your death, and your property and assets will pass in accordance with the pre-determined rules of intestacy. We treat every will with care and precision after having considered personal circumstances and wishes. This brings peace of mind and the knowledge that issues have been thought through and potential problems later on averted.

A professionally drafted will from us will also take account of any issues relating to Inheritance Tax. It is perfectly proper to arrange your affairs so that your estate, which you and your family have worked hard to build, benefits your family and others of your choice rather than going to the State in taxation. Although sometimes complicated, tax planning and a well drafted Will can drastically reduce potential Inheritance Tax liability.

We have the knowledge and experience to guide you through these intricacies, enabling you to capitalise on the various exemptions and reliefs, and reduce the tax payable on your estate.

We also offer a sympathetic but professional service when applying for probate or administering an estate after death. Our partners are willing to accept appointment as executors, or alternatively they will work with the executors appointed by the will.
