Wills, Trusts & Probate

Team contact: Sarah Hickey | Dalia Sainsbury | Nick Stotesbury | Edward White

Here at Batchelors, we have helped hundreds of families make sure that their family wealth is preserved to the maximum extent possible and that their assets are passed on as they wished them to be.

If you do not make a will, your estate may not go to those you think it should. If you have assets over £325,000 (2018/2019 rates) - homeowners take note - your estate may pay Inheritance Tax, which is often avoidable by taking straightforward legal advice and having a correctly drafted Will. It is not pennies either - an estate worth £600,000 could pay £110,000 in Inheritance Tax.

Worse still, if you become infirm and need to be looked after by the State, your estate can be virtually wiped out unless you make appropriate financial arrangements in advance.

It may not be pleasant to think about, but ignoring the problems will not make them go away, it will just make them worse and generally the earlier the issues are dealt with, the better.

Do not put it off. Making a will is not expensive. And, while setting up a power of attorney may be more expensive now due to recent changes to the process, it is a lot cheaper and less stressful to take care of your arrangements now, than the sometimes unavoidable alternative route through the court of protection.

Batchelors online Will creation system is provided by Lifeium Ltd. Lifeium is a legal technology provider that has licensed its technology to Batchelors and securely holds the information you provide for purposes of instructing us to prepare your Will. If payment is not made, Lifeium securely stores your data.

If you pay for our services through the online Wills App, you are onboarded as a client and we shall hold your data. A consultation shall be arranged with your legal adviser once we have received your data.

Until you have spoken to your legal adviser, you have not been offered or given legal advice, and Batchelors Solicitors won’t act for you unless you formally engage us later.

Making payment towards our services to create a Will and thereafter signing our client care letter creates the solicitor-client relationship between you and us. Lifeium receives a fee from us for licensing the online Will creation platform to us.

Your data will remain entirely private and confidential from other parties who may also use the online Wills App. You can find instructions on how to manage your Lifeium Account within the App.

If you have any support questions, please contact Lifeium through the App or by emailing:
