Making a will is a simple and affordable process that helps minimise tax burdens for your loved ones and handles potential costs related to intestacy. This ensures that your wishes are carried out after you pass away, providing enough support for your family members or children.
We offer services to help draft your will and provide advice with each property transaction, sale, or re-mortgage, all at a reasonable cost.
Unfortunately, probate can lead to conflicts, and we are here to guide executors and beneficiaries on their responsibilities and rights regarding wills or intestacy.
We are prepared to support or initiate legal actions for any disputes related to probate or succession rights that may arise.
A will is a legal document that outlines a person's wishes for how their assets should be distributed after they pass away. This involves putting the choices in writing, signing the document, and having two present witnesses.
Having a will is crucial because it outlines your instructions for the distribution of assets after your death. The document ensures that your wishes are followed. It provides clarity and avoids potential disputes among beneficiaries.
Professional legal advice is essential in creating a valid will, as strict requirements must be met to ensure its legality. This guidance helps navigate the complexities of the process, ensuring that your intentions are accurately documented and legally enforceable.
Additionally, it can streamline the probate process, making the administration of your estate more efficient for your loved ones.
Overlooking Changes in Marital Status: After a divorce, beneficiaries may remain unchanged unless a new will is created. Always update your will to reflect your marital status and beneficiary preferences.
Ignoring International Considerations: Be mindful of the potential impact on your foreign assets and intentions. Seek legal advice to ensure cross-border considerations are adequately addressed.
Failure to Safeguard the Will: Safeguard your will in a secure location, and consider providing a copy to your chosen executor or storing it in a safety deposit box. Regularly review and update the location details if necessary.
Not Considering Digital Assets: In the digital age, it's important to account for online assets, such as social media accounts, digital files, and cryptocurrencies. Clearly outline your wishes regarding these assets in your will to ensure they are properly handled after your passing.
Incomplete or Unclear Instructions: Take the time to clearly articulate your wishes, specify how you want your assets distributed, and consider seeking legal advice to ensure the document is legally sound and unambiguous.
The executor is the person chosen in the will to manage the deceased person's estate and carry out their wishes. When there is no will (intestacy), an administrator is appointed to distribute the estate according to specific rules.
Probate is the legal process of confirming the validity of a will and obtaining a Grant of Probate from the Probate Office. The executor seeks this grant, which affirms their authority to administer the estate.
The Probate Office oversees the process to ensure that the estate is distributed according to the terms of the will or intestacy rules.
If someone passes away without a valid will, the Succession Act of 1965 dictates intestacy rules. These directions determine how the estate is divided among surviving relatives, including spouses, children, parents, and siblings.
Inheritance tax may apply to certain inheritances and gifts. Seeking professional advice is recommended to understand potential exemptions and reliefs and navigate the tax implications properly.
Absolutely. A will can be contested when someone close to the deceased is excluded or receives an inadequate inheritance.
If you are in a situation where you want to challenge a will or defend one under challenge, seeking guidance from a probate litigation lawyer is crucial.
Our solicitors specialise in assisting clients with routine probate applications and litigation involving inheritance disputes. Due to specific time constraints, you must act promptly in probate and litigation cases.
Delaying seeking legal advice may pose risks.

A will is a very important legal document which sets out your instructions for what you want to happen to your assets when you die. The requirements for a valid will are strict therefore it is important to have professional legal advice.
Probate is the process of dealing with the estate of a person who has died leaving assets that need to be administered.
Creating a will allows you to:
Regardless of the size of your estate, creating a will can be a simple process when you work with a solicitor who specialises in, probate and succession estate work.
A will is a legal document that lets you express how you want your property, assets, and keepsakes to be shared on your death. The person writing the will is called the “testator” or “testatrix”.You can make as many wills as you like throughout your life, but the only one that will be valid on your death will be the most recent one you made before your death. All wills you created before this once will not have any legal standing.
Although there isn’t one standard will template in Ireland, the last will should contain these ten essential elements:
Legal language in a will often speaks of a legacy or devise.A legacy is a piece of personal property, like a piece of jewellery you want to leave to a loved one. A device is a fundamental property you wish to leave a loved one.
The need for a solicitor to write your will with you becomes apparent when you think of all the different scenarios that could arise. Professional advice pays excellent dividends in protecting your wishes no matter how circumstances might change from when you wrote your will to when your choice comes into play.The doctrine of lapse gives us a perfect example of this possibility. Suppose one of your beneficiaries passes away before you do. In that case, the legacy you left to that person will be treated as though you died intestate (without a will) unless you have included a residuary clause in the will.
Whether your estate is large or small, creating a choice helps you plan what happens to your possessions and how your finances and property can take care of your family after your passing.We’re always willing to sit down and discuss your will with you confidentially and sensitively. Don’t be one of the 70% of Irish people who don’t have a will – the stress it causes can easily be avoided by working with us to create a choice that expresses your wishes.
Regardless of the size of your estate, creating a will can be a simple process when you work with a solicitor who specialises in wills, probate and succession matters. This post covers everything you need to know about making a will.
