Will writing & related services in Pontypridd

Making a Will

When writing a Will, there are all sorts of issues to consider, even for relatively simple estates. Our Will writing solicitors will talk through the details of your estate with you and all of the issues you need to consider, including Inheritance Tax planning and setting up trusts to provide for children and other dependants. You can then have complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of.

Updating your Will

Where the time has come to update your Will, we can advise on the best way to do so. Sometimes this can be achieved with the creation of an additional legal document known as a codicil, in other cases an entirely new Will may be required. In either eventuality, our Will solicitors in Pontypridd can prepare all of the necessary paperwork. At JCP Solicitors we suggest you review your Will every three years.

Statutory Wills

Should a loved one no longer have the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, they will have to apply to the Court of Protection for a Statutory Will. This will set out what should happen to your loved one’s estate creating certainty for the future. Our team can help to both advise you and manage this process.

To see how we can help with making a Statutory Will, take a look at our Court of Protection expertise.

Estate and succession planning for farms & agricultural businesses

We work closely with the agricultural community across a range of legal issues, including Wills and lifetime planning. Our solicitors regularly advise farming families and other agricultural business owners on estate and succession planning, including guidance on using Agricultural Property Relief (APR) and Business Property Relief (BPR) to reduce an estate’s Inheritance Tax liability.

Will disputes

Inheritance disputes can be very complicated and contentious. If these sensitive matters are not handled correctly, there is a risk of serious damage to family relationships.
