Resolved Question:

I am planning to make a will. Young family of 4. Both of us doctors. Assets- house +3 rental properties+ bank saving+ shares I am trying to find a solicitor who will make a will. Now, there are so many accreditation- lexcel, WIQS, family law and then SRA regulation and tax inheritance planning. I am confused. I spoke to one lawyer and mentioned about my requirements. I also mentioned it that I need to plan in such a way that it minimises the tax inheritance in future. He mentioned I need to speak to a specialist for that but could not point me to one. Could anyone please guide how do I find a lawyer who makes will and also has knowledge about tax inheritance as well. What accreditation I should be looking at in the solicitor Should I search on – - http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/accreditation/specialist-schemes/wills-inheritance-quality/ - http://www.lawsocietyapproved.com/Search.aspx?Search=KT173AT&Category=Wills%20and%20Inheritance%20Quality - http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/find-a-solicitor/#formtop And search under –wills and probate

Hi there,

Thanks for your enquiry.

You should check on the Law Society website for a Solicitor who is accredited under the Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme.

I must say, any Wills Solicitor worth their salt, should be able to also advise you on IHT planning, although to become a member of the above Scheme, you will have had to show that you are a specialist in IHT planning.

I hope this answers your question.

Kind Regards

Hi again,
Just been checking out the Firms in Epsom- I would strongly recommend TWM Solicitors LLP, who are a well known Firm.

Alternatively, BWT Law LLP.

Hope this assists.
