Wills, Trusts and Probate
At Rollits, our expert team has years of experience helping clients to secure their assets for their loved ones. A well-drafted Will allows you to state clearly who will inherit your property and savings after your death.
It gives your partner, whether married to you or not, important powers and rights.
A Will allows you to choose the person or persons you would like to administer your affairs when you are gone. You can nominate guardians for your children and make provision for their financial security. A properly drawn-up Will can also help you avoid or reduce inheritance tax on your property or assets.
We’ve joined Remember a Charity
We are proud to announce that we are a campaign supporter of Remember a Charity. This consortium is made up of 200 UK charities who are working together to raise awareness about charitable giving in Wills. Many of us support a charity during our lifetime but according to statistics supplied by Remember a Charity, only 6.3% of us think to include charities in our Wills and yet there can be significant tax benefits in doing so.
For more information regarding Wills, Estate Planning and Charitable Giving please contact Sarah Adams

Contentious Trust and Probate Law
A contentious Probate or Disputed Will is a dispute involving inheritance or the validity of a Will. If you’ve been left out of a Will or you think the Will is wrong in some way, you can contest it but it can be a complicated process and it’s a good idea to seek legal advice to guide you and help you to make the right decisions.
We have expertise and experience in advising on disputes surrounding the circumstances in which Wills were made, or perhaps changed, including reviewing the advice and involvement of other solicitors or will-writers, and helping clients to understand whether and how these may be capable of being challenged.
Our work also includes advising on both sides of disputes under the Inheritance Act – whether on behalf of a spouse, former spouse or offspring of the deceased seeking to claim a greater provision from the estate of the deceased, or on behalf of Executors seeking to deliver the testator’s wishes and oppose unmeritorious claims under the Act.
