John Thomson, as a member of New Leaf Will Writers Federation, provides a professional Will Writing and Estate Planning service for Lincolnshire and the neighbouring Counties.
I’m very proud to say that I’ve been a Financial Adviser for a little over 25 years now. I started out in 1988 at The Prudential and in 2001 I moved into the independent arena. It’s fair to say that over the years, I must have referred hundreds of people to seek professional advice and to make a will. Many heeded my advice and now have the peace of mind to know that they have planned for their family’s future. However, far more people never sought the advice that I recommended and are taking a risk that without a will, their wishes will be catered for. Sadly, that will rarely be the case. By making a Will you decide exactly what happens to your property and possessions after your death. If you die without making a Will then your property and possessions will be distributed according to statutory rules of intestacy, this means that your assets may not go to the people who you would wish to benefit.
I sought opinion from my current clients and without exception the barriers that stopped them making a will came down to cost and time. Time, as in having to take time from work and cost as is most of the prices quoted were very prohibitive for some clients.
As I profoundly believe that this emotive and sensitive issue needs to be addressed, I made the decision to create Stepping Stone Wills and following all of the mandatory training and accreditation, I can now personally offer a full Will Writing and Estate Planning service.
Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do for your family. As you have looked after your loved ones during your life, the natural step is to look after them on your death. Would you like to decide who inherits what you leave behind? If the answer is yes, then Stepping Stone Wills can assure you of a friendly, professional and complete Will Writing Service.
When you arrange your Wills with me, you will always deal with and speak with me, I will take your instructions and personally draft your Wills and all of my Wills are arranged with a home visit at a time to suit you.
There is no need to waste a day's holiday, or if you are self-employed no need to miss out on a day's work, just let me know what the best times to fit you in are. I want you to feel as comfortable as possible so I can come to your home, so you won't need to incur any ever increasing travel costs.
Whether it’s a simple Will, advice on protecting your property from Care Home fees or you have an even more complex issue, Stepping Stone Wills can provide you with the most appropriate solution together with a truly personal service.
