Your Will is the most important document you will prepare in your lifetime, so it is essential that you receive the right advice on your estate and your wealth. Whatever is driving you to review your Will, be it health issues or family concerns, Victoria can work with you to understand precisely what you have to give away, how best to give it and whether you have any inheritance tax liability.
Victoria specialises in preparing bespoke Wills for a wide range of clients, from business owners and family farming partners to the elderly and infirm, from first time parents to offshore residents with assets in England. She has specialised in Wills since qualification at a London firm in 2008 and benefits from being one of few highly regarded Trusts and Estates Practitioners in the UK who has completed the STEP Diploma in Will Preparation with Distinction. STEP (The Society of Trust and Estates Practitioners) is recognised in the industry as the 'gold standard' qualification so you can be confident she can advise you in line with the latest legal, technical and regulatory developments.
Victoria is passionate about creating a Will that meets all of your needs, whilst ensuring it can stand the test of time. Once you become a client, Fetter Lane Legal will store all your important estate documents in its secure, fireproof deed storage, and send out copies over email and via post for your records, and a bespoke date for a Will Review will be agreed. Victoria can then be contacted at any point to provide advice from an estate planning perspective when your personal or business life takes an unexpected direction, giving you a direct and sensitive point of reference to offer you peace of mind.
If necessary, Victoria will also liaise with your financial advisor, accountant or pensions advisor, to ensure your Will accords with their tax or estate planning advice for your estate.
Along with advising and preparing new Wills, Victoria can also assist with making Codicils, or act as a consultant for clients in relation to applying for a Grant of Probate after someone has died.
Victoria offers competitive fixed fees for Wills upon request, with advisory meetings charged at an hourly rate.
