Prettys are members of Certainty the UK's online national Will register.
Making a Will is one of the most important financial decisions any person undertakes. The rise in property wealth and the decline in marriage especially (a surviving co-habitee has no protection when their partner dies), has in recent years made the writing of a Will essential. A Will can ensure that your loved ones are not burdened with the financial complications arising from your death and will also guarantee that your valued assets pass to the beneficiaries of your choice. When preparing your will, we will consider the likely value of your estate and, where necessary, provide inheritance Tax Planning advice to maximise the net value of your estate. We will also advise on any potential claims against your estate. Living Wills When preparing Living Wills, we can discuss your wishes with you and how best to provide for them.
