The complete answer depends upon your unique family and estate situation but the principles of our business are that:

  • By taking the time to understand your individual family and estate situation we can ensure that your beneficiaries receive as much of your estate as possible in the shortest possible time.
  • By coming to your home at a time to suit you we can make it as easy as possible for you to write your will.
  • By voluntarily abiding by a code of practice approved by the Office of Fair Trading we can give you confidence in the way we will act.
  • By our membership of the Institute of Professional Will Writers we can demonstrate that we have the technical and professional standards to not only draft the documents but also provide the advice and guidance necessary to ensure your wishes will prevail.

Why choose Stamford Estate Planning?

Based in Farnborough, Hants we are specialist will writers examined regulated and insured by the Institute of Professional Will writers (IPW). As members of the IPW we operate to a code of practice approved by the Office of Fair Trading and are proud to display their logos. We strongly recommend that anyone considering making a will should first visit their websites, at www.oft.gov.uk, and www.ipw.org.uk.

We have been guiding and advising individuals and families for many years in what is a very sensitive area. Our experience is that many of our clients feel a true sense of relief after finally resolving an issue that in many cases has been nagging them for a long time.

WE DO NOT CONVEY PROPERTY …. WE DO NOT HANDLE DIVORCES ….
WE DO NOT FIGHT COMPENSATION CLAIMS ….
WE ARE WILLWRITING SPECIALISTS….
WE ARE DIFFERENT!

From your first contact with us you will notice this difference. A friendly and helpful voice is waiting to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. The next stage is for us to visit you at home at a time to suit you. The purpose of this is to listen to your wishes and understand your situation before offering appropriate guidance. In many ways this is the most important part of the process, and by coming to your home the intention is to create an informal but professional atmosphere. We strive to explain everything in plain English in a patient and friendly manner. Trust and Respect are the cornerstones of our relationships with our clients and the bedrock of our success.

Your Will is then drafted and normally ready to be signed within 10 working days. After that the most important thing is to keep it secure and up to date, so that it continues to be an accurate reflection of your life and wishes.

Protecting Your Estate

Thanks to the improvements in medical science and general health and fitness, we are all living longer. Not surprisingly however, few of us have considered the implications of this for our hard earned savings and investments and crucially our home. Most of us assume that once we have cleared any debts or mortgages and paid our taxes, what is ours is ours; thus we are free to do whatever we want with our property before eventually leaving our estate to our children.

Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. When all assets including our homes, savings, investments pensions are aggregated together, most people can easily have an estate that amounts to over one hundred thousand pounds. However whilst it is wonderful to reflect on a job well done and feel proud that you will leave to you children a good inheritance; unless careful planning is made these assets can be dissipated in any number of ways. Our life’s work is diminished, and our loved ones receive a fraction and often nothing at all of what we had originally imagined.
