Our Wills Services
We can help you draw up your Will as well as advising you upon its contents, based upon your particular circumstances.
At Chhokar & Co we have experience of drafting all types of Trusts – tax planning, family, off shore, will, charitable and protective. Whether you are seeking to mitigate potential Inheritance Tax liability, set up a charitable organisation or provide for loved ones, we can advise you as to the most suitable form of Trust for your purpose. If you wish to manage your wealth in a wholly legal yet tax efficient manner we can suggest solutions. Where necessary our connections with other professionals may be able to assist you further in safeguarding your assets and minimising the impact of taxes upon your estate.
After the death of a loved one, we can ease the stress of having to deal with the deceased’s estate. We regularly apply for Probate and Letters of Administration, and assist Executors in the speedy and effective administration of estates.
Our lawyers have experience of challenging wills and making and pursuing claims on behalf of disappointed potential beneficiaries. We also deal with contentious probate cases including those involving foreign laws – especially India.
Our Firm is a fully accredited Member of Certainty – the National Will Register and Will search service. This means that as well as being solicitors specialising in writing Wills and handling Probate, we are able to register and search for missing Wills.
Two thirds of Britons do not have a Will, when most of us should. If a Will cannot be found after your death then your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules – which may not necessarily be the way you would have wished. The Certainty Will Register has up to 1 Will being registered every 8 seconds. We can help you to protect your family by registering your Will today.
Certainty is endorsed by the Law Society of England and Wales as the exclusive provider of a National Will Register for the legal profession and their clients.
