Writing a Will in Bradford: Advice from Our Specialists

Many people in the UK never get round to writing a will and of those who do, not all manage to create wills that are legally binding.

If you have personal possessions and financial assets that you would like to leave to your children, other family members, or to close friends, it is important to express your wishes in a well-written legal document so they are not open to misinterpretation in the future.

If you need any help with this task, we invite you to get in touch and take advantage of our expert will writing service in Bradford, which is delivered by caring, experienced legal professionals. Putting your affairs in order is simple with Joseph A Hey & Son at your side.

Executors of wills

An important part of will writing is to appoint an executor who will accept the duties and responsibilities attached to the will and ensure that the instructions defined in the will are carried out to the letter. More often than not an executor will be aware of their appointment prior to death taking place. The Executor could be the professional making out the will, a close friend or a member of the family. Once death has occurred it is very important to know the will’s whereabouts as soon as possible after death and to establish the deceased’s wishes regarding their funeral. Often, for example, instructions are included about specific funeral requirements such as where the service should be held or what should be done with the cremated remains (ashes) after the cremation (see Pre-funeral planning).


Will preparation also allows you to express a desire for your body to be bequeathed to medical science. It is very important to know if the deceased has expressed a wish in life for their body to be bequeathed to medical science. In such circumstances there will be written documentation that has been pre-prepared in conjunction with the medical school concerned. This information about the deceased’s final wishes must be acted upon as soon as practicable due to the speed with which medical schools require a body after death. Although the deceased may have expressly wished their body to be left to medical science, the availability of a place at the medical school concerned, together with the final illness and subsequent cause of death may in fact mean that the medical school refuses to accept the bequeathal. Under these circumstances a funeral will have to take place which may contravene the deceased’s last wishes. Speak to our staff for more information on medical schools in Bradford and West Yorkshire.

Impartial Will Advice from Bradford Experts

From appointing guardians for young children to allocating financial assets to your loved ones, a professionally prepared will can be designed to ensure that all of your wishes are carried out in full. If you neglect to make a will, there is no guarantee that your wishes will be respected after you pass: without such a document, your assets will be distributed according to current intestacy laws in England and Wales and the state will determine who looks after your children.

However, it is easy to avoid this possibility with the help of our professional will writers in Bradford. We can help you to prepare a legally compliant will that ensures your children are looked after according to your wishes and your assets distributed as you see fit.

Keeping Wills in Bradford Secure and Up to Date

Ensuring your will remains safe, secure and current is just as important as creating one in the first place. As the years go by, your wishes may change, and your will needs to reflect this. Perhaps your current will states that your assets should be distributed to loved ones who are no longer with us, or maybe you’ve decided that there are people who could benefit more from inheriting your finances. Our will writers in Bradford are at your service for as long as required, ensuring your wishes are respected when you pass away.

All our professional will writers are highly experienced and well-versed in all laws related to wills and probate. Plus, you can expect to be treated with the utmost respect by anybody employed by Joseph A Hey & Son. Learn more about the benefits of our will writing service in Bradford by calling us today.
