News: Malcolm C Foy and the season of good wills

By

A will drafted by a solicitor is the best Christmas gift for your loved ones, according to local law firm Malcolm C Foy & Co.

With offices in Doncaster and Rotherham, Malcolm C Foy & Co is using the festive season to call on the estimated 30 million adults in the UK who do not have a will to put legally drafting their final wishes at the top of the to-do list this Christmas.


Malcolm C Foy & Co is a member of the Law Society's Wills & Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS), which  provides a best practice quality mark for wills and estate administration advice that consumers can trust.

The firm is also reminding co-habiting couples who are not married or in a civil partnership, that they have the most to lose if they die without a will. Government statistics point to more than one million unmarried couples with dependent children living in the UK and recent changes to the rules around who inherits what have strengthened the position of married spouses and civil partners, but left the position of cohabiting couples unchanged. Only partners who are married or in a civil partnership can inherit under these intestacy rules.

Sarah Hartley, director at Malcolm C Foy & Co, said: "For many people, the festive season is all about spending time with loved ones so we urge people to reflect on that this Christmas and think how they would feel if you died and they received nothing.

"No one likes to think too carefully about their own demise, but ensuring your final wishes are made clear and legally recognised is the best gift for your family this Christmas.

"You can return those awful socks and loud jumper to the shop and get a refund, but there's no going back if you die without a will."
