A Will is a legal document that in its most simple form, sets out who should benefit from your money, property and possessions after you have died.
For advice on any aspect of Wills, trusts or probate, contact our team of specialist wills and probate solicitors. Our solicitors are based in Hull, Scunthorpe, Grimsby, Lincoln, Beverley, Newcastle, Willerby and London
Wills are very complicated documents. Your Will must be drafted correctly and signed in a specific way for it to be valid. An invalid Will could leave your loved ones with a number of problems that can be expensive and time consuming to deal with. We therefore suggest that you never take the risk of making a home-made Will or using a non-qualified Will writers service.
Making a Will is one of the most significant decisions you can make, yet so many people do not get around to it or put it to the bottom of their to do list. Reasons we have come across for this are:
If you die without a Will the law (specifically the intestacy rules) sets out who inherits from you. If you have limited living family members, all your property and possessions may go to the Crown.
Your Will can deal with appointment of your Executors, and Trustees, pass your bank accounts, investments, property and personal possessions, request someone to care for your pets, set out your funeral wishes and if needed, appoints guardians to look after young children.
Furthermore, we can also discuss, vulnerable beneficiaries, possible inheritance tax or care home fee planning.
At Pepperells we offer a flexible and personal Will service that allows you to communicate your wishes. We are used to dealing with complex and delicate issues and focus on ensuring our clients at ease. We have a flexible service meaning we can do appointments in several different ways:

...In our brief time working with Pepperell's we have been very pleased with their quality of service and professionalism...
After calling 15 carefully picked solicitors, Pepperell’s were the only firm that returned our call and took our business seriously. They carefully gathered information and explained their quotation in a transparent and reasonable fashion. We look forward to working with Pepperells in the future.
...Dealing with Pepperells and Natasha as my solicitor couldn't have been any easier...
Any questions, concerns or problems I encoutered throughout my house buying process were dealt with quickly and clearly. Theres nothing more I could have asked for and could not have been made any easier for me.
...Pepperells and in particular Patrick Craft and his team are extremely professional and you can be 100 % certain that a thorough job is done...
Patrick picked up on an issue that the seller’s solicitor should have seen 2 years ago when the house was first built and had failed to do so, but Patrick was on the ball and would not proceed until the issue was addressed. I would always recommend Pepperells and esp Patrick. Absolutely excellent service. Thank you.
Ryan and his colleagues are professional, efficient and friendly. I have used their services on several occasions. Highly recommended
I used Ryan to settle my lease matter, he was very professional and always kept me upto date. Would definitely recommend.
Amy and Angelika have been a pleasure to deal with, we will certainly continue to use Ryan and his team for the years to follow.
Ryan and Georgia did an amazing job at working to out tight timescales having previously had our purchase fall through due to the clients circumstances. They made sure all everything was in order and chase the clients solicitors to ensure we kept to time and kept us updated throughout.
