AREAS OF PRACTICE

At Morgan Has Solicitors, we can help to draft your Will for you. We particularly encourage property owners to make a Will. For most people their house is their biggest asset. It is important that those you want to inherit are protected and making a Will ensures this.

 

Making a Will enables you to:

  • Decide who should receive your money, property and special belongings when you die
  • Appoint the guardians of your choice to care for your children in the event that the other parent is unable to do so
  • Incorporate your preferred funeral arrangements
  • Have a peace of mind, knowing that you have relieved your family of the burden of making decisions at a stressful time
