The importance of making a Will
Most people know the importance of making a Will, but for one reason or another never get around to it or think that because they do not have considerable savings or property, they do not need to. Without a Will, the government (through the Laws of Intestacy) will decide how your estate is divided when you die. Under these laws, even if you are married, your surviving spouse may not inherit all of your assets, and if you have children they would be able to claim their share of your estate when they turn 18 (16 in Scotland). Writing a Will ensures that your assets pass to the people you want to leave them to and at an appropriate age, under the protection of a legally binding document.
Why choose James McKenzie
Established in 2007 and with more than 70,000 Wills written for corporate employees and their families to date, James McKenzie provides a personal yet professional Will writing service no matter how simple or complex your individual circumstances may be.
We believe that writing a Will to protect your loved ones needs to be undertaken with careful planning and consideration so you have the certainty they will be looked after in accordance with your wishes.

Our ‘Priced for Life’ promise provides further reassurance that no matter what life throws at you, the James McKenzie team are always on hand to help answer any questions you may have, to review your Will or provide the advice and support to revise your Will. (Revisions may incur a small fee).
