Wills and Probate
The peace of mind that comes with having a professionally drafted will cannot be underestimated. In the same way, entrusting the administration of a loved one's estate to a reputable legal practice removes at least some of the uncertainty that comes with the loss of a close friend or family member. The lawyers at Gary Keogh & Co., Solicitors in Limerick are committed to providing sensitive and personal legal advice to clients during an emotionally difficult time.
Limerick Wills Lawyers And Inheritance Tax Planning
A legally drafted will provides you with the reassurance that your affairs are in order and that your estate will be dealt with in as tax efficient a manner as possible. It minimises the possibility of family disputes and challenges to the validity of the will. Above all, a properly executed will ensures that your personal wishes will be carried out.
At Gary Keogh & Co., Solicitors we finalise wills only after we have taken detailed instructions from you about your intentions. Before coming to see us, it is a good idea to think about the following:
• Assets you are able to leave, so that we can consider the tax consequences of any gifts you wish to make
• How you want your property to be distributed
• Specific gifts of money or property that you wish to give
• Stipulations on any gifts
• Possible executors and guardians
• Gifts you may wish to make to charities
• Your funeral wishes
We remind our clients that wills can be updated at any time, and we encourage you to contact us should your wishes or circumstances change.
