Is the succession of your farm at risk!?

14 April 2015

Balancing your wishes and the expectations of the next generation can be emotional and sometimes extremely complicated.

Hopefully, you will have given due thought and consideration as to what is to happen to the farm either when you no longer wish to be involved or when you are no longer here.

If you have ever asked yourself these questions and one or more of them remain unanswered, then you would benefit from speaking to us;

  • How will the farm survive me?
  • How do I split my estate equally between my heirs?
  • Who do I leave the farm to?
  • Have I left enough for others?
  • How can I prevent arguments amongst them?

Whilst having a will is a starting point, it needs to be written very carefully and should be regularly reviewed.

Do not put the succession of your farm at risk. Contact our wills, probate & trusts team to put your will and other succession planning in order.
