Get In Touch To Discuss Making A Will – 01506 420333

Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to protect your loved ones and your assets.

Making a Will not only ensures that your money, property and possessions go to those you wish to benefit but also allows you to appoint Guardians to look after your young children, leave legacies to charities and make funeral arrangements.  Having an up-to-date Will gives your family the security of knowing they have been provided for and gives you peace of mind because you know everything is in order.

Purdie Maclean would always recommend having an up-to-date Will but there are particular milestones when we would recommend reviewing or updating your Will as follows:-

  • Buying your first home
  • Moving in with someone
  • Getting married or entering into a Civil Partnership
  • Having children
  • Starting or selling your own business
  • Separation or divorce
  • Receiving an inheritance or a gift from family

Making or updating a Will with Purdie Maclean is simple.

We would meet with you to ensure we had full details of your personal and financial circumstances – home visits can be arranged if necessary

We would then prepare a first draft of the Will that reflects your wishes and send it to you for approval

Once your Will has been approved we would prepare the Will and arrange for you to sign it

After signing we will send you a completed copy for you to retain and look after the original Will for safekeeping free of charge

    Probate or Confirmation?
