Estate planning, Wills and Probate
Over the years we have assisted a number of clients manage their family affairs and advised them on all aspects of wills, trusts and related matters.
A will enables you to decide and direct what will happen to your money, property and possessions upon your death.
Without a will, the law will decide who should take control of your affairs and how your assets will be distributed. It is therefore important that you make your wishes expressly known through your will.
Saracens can also take into account any particular religious beliefs.
If a family member or loved one has passed away without making a will, we can assist your application to the Probate Registry to obtain control of that individual’s estate which will then allow you to decide on how any assets will be distributed. Saracens can assist in obtaining a letter of administration and grant of probate to ensure assets are distributed in accordance with the wishes of the deceased.
