Wills & Succession Planning
Kinley Legal advises private clients, both resident in the Isle of Man or elsewhere, on estate planning, the preparation of wills and succession planning issues. We help ensure that your wishes will be carried out after your death, and that your family is provided for as you intend.
We advise on wills covering the worldwide estate of Isle of Man or English residents, including in more complicated situations where there are ongoing trusts for children and specific provision for the families of former relationships.
Kinley Legal prepares specialised wills to deal with the Isle of Man estate of internationally mobile individuals in complex cases. This can often be in conjunction with our global partner law firms, planning a bespoke set of international wills to ensure seamless estate planning for people with interests in multiple countries.
Our lawyers are happy to attend clients’ homes and offices anywhere in the Isle of Man, in addition to at our offices. This can be to take instructions for wills. as well as when the time comes to witness your signature to them.
Where we prepare a will which deals with significant real or personal property in England or Wales, this will be prepared by a fully qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) and we will comply with the STEP Code for Will Preparation in England & Wales. Where we prepare any other will, we will apply the provisions of the STEP Code by analogy as an example of good professional practice.
Our wills and succession services are complemented by our international expertise and notarial practice. Our wills clients often find the making of a will a good time to also consider the merits of making a power of attorney and/or an advance healthcare directive (living will).
