Licence to Will


11 October 2021

By Clare Nichols

It's probably a sign you've worked in Private Client for too long when, mid James Bond movie, your mind gets to thinking about whether James Bond has a Will. I think it's reasonable to assume that he would be obliged to given the frequency of the near death scrapes he gets himself in to. If he doesn't, he definitely should!

We may not all live a life quite as colourful as the charismatic Mr Bond, in fact I can confidently say I've never found myself in a high stakes poker game with my life on the line, but does that make a Will for someone like me any less important? In short, no.

A Will not only ensures peace of mind for you during your lifetime but also provides certainty for your loved ones upon your death.

If you would like advice regarding putting a Will in place please contact our Private Client department on 01245 228125 or email and one of the team will be happy to assist you.
