THIS IS A PROMOTED STORY (ADVERTORIAL) AND NOT A NEWS ARTICLE or BLOG.

pocketpound.co.uk is a general interest website containing articles about a wide variety of subjects.

Many of these articles are what is commonly referred to as Advertorials. The term "advertorial" is a combination of "advertisement" and "editorial" written in an editorial format as an independent news story, when in fact the advertisement may promote a particular product or interest.

Advertorials take factual information and report it in an editorial format to allow the author, often a company marketing its products, to enhance or explain certain elements to maintain the reader's interest.

A familiar example is an airline's in-flight magazines that provide an editorial reports about travel destinations to which the airline flies.

Why should the Government decide where your money goes after you die?

A brilliant new Will Writing Service is taking the UK by storm: 

You’ve worked hard for what you have. 

You’ve paid more than enough tax, too.

 So shouldn’t you decide where your wealth goes after you die? Shouldn’t that be your right? 

The simple answer is ‘yes.’ 

Yet two thirds of UK adults have not written a Will. Nor have 70% with children under 18. It’s an enormous risk. 

Without a Will, you could find: 

  • Your property is handed to the ‘wrong’ people. 
  • Expensive legal disputes destroy the wealth you’ve worked your entire life for. 
  • Your inheritance tax bill spikes – wiping out 40% of any mismanaged money. 

Making plans for when you die is - understandably - difficult and uncomfortable. Nobody wants to do it. 

Nevertheless, consider what could happen to those you love most if you don’t. Put this off, and the law decides what happens to your money. 

And it’s highly unlikely the law will carry out your wishes 

To give you a few examples of what could happen without a Will:

  • John and his partner Margaret have been together 30 happy years. Margaret’s first husband, Gary, left her 40 years ago and she hasn’t seen him since. If Margaret dies, Gary gets the bulk – if not all – of her wealth. John gets nothing.
  •  James has 3 children and 1 step-child who he’s raised and loved as his own. If James were to die, his 3 children would receive their shares – split evenly. His step-child gets nothing. 
  • David, an elderly man, has no known relatives. However, his neighbours have loved and cared for him in old age. They’ve become a new family to him. When David dies, none of them receive a penny. Everything he owns is seized by the Government.


Top 7 reasons

to write a will now 

1. Hand your property to the right people. 

2. Avoid expensive legal disputes. 

3. Reduce Inheritance Tax and maximise the benefit for your heirs. 

4. Protect your children and your grandchildren. 

5. Include a legacy and leave a little something for those special in your life. 

6. Minimise the risk of family disputes and stress. 

7. You choose your executor, not one appointed by law. 

Get started


These are just 3 potential problems. 

There are countless other possibilities, because every situation is unique. 

Your situation is unique. 

Quite simply, the Government do not consider your personal relationships after you die. The rules are black and white. Sometimes leaving those you love and care for most with nothing.

Even if your situation is relatively typical you need a Will. 

Select your area below to get started:

Because this keeps your tax to a minimum, too 

For example, you can pass as much money as you like to a spouse or civil partner. All without paying a penny of tax.

But that's not all ...  

Gifts of up to £3000-a-year can be handed to your children while you or your spouse are alive. Again, tax free.  

However, without a will, your spouse would likely get your first £250,000 worth of assets. Plus 50% of what’s left.  

The other 50% would be split evenly between your children. Or other members of your family. And this is all heavily taxed.  

As you may have seen, this recently happened to comedian Rik Mayall’s family.  

Mayall died without a will and assets totaling £1.2 million. Hundreds of thousands were exposed to a 40% tax hit.    

Perhaps you’re thinking “I’m not Rik Mayall. I don’t have that much money.”  

Maybe.

But consider the rising value of your assets. Particularly your property.

You need a professionally-written Will to keep this to an absolute minimum.

So what are your options? 

First, obviously, you could do nothing.

Let the Government decide what happens to your money. Place your family’s well being in their hands.  

However, I expect this is not the option for you. The chances are too high something will go wrong ...  

... potentially leaving those you love most with financial stress after your die.   

You could hire a solicitor to do it.  

But this, as you know, is expensive and time-consuming.   

Or what about a DIY will?  

True, this is cheap. However, the slightest mistake could make it completely useless as a legal document.  

If you don’t know what you’re doing, your Will could be disregarded entirely.
And if your family wished to challenge it, they may find the legal fees aren’t worth the risk.

Thankfully, there is one other option.  A way to get a fast, affordable Will professionally-written to your exact circumstances.

What’s more, getting started is effortless:

Answer four simple questions about your specific situation here.   

Provide your name and email.  

If you like what you hear, get them to write your Will.  

Legacy Wills write 200 Wills a week. What’s more, because it’s handled through the post, your Will is cheaper than you’d pay elsewhere. Certainly less than you’d pay a high street solicitor.  

Your Will arrives within 30 days.     

All you have to do is sign the documents and return them in the pre-paid envelope included.  

It’s simple.  

Now you can relax knowing your family are protected. No matter what happens.   

You’re under no obligation to do anything.

If you die without a Will, you’re known as ‘Intestate’.
