Providing the legal support for first time home buyers is an absolute pleasure. I meet people of all ages and at different stages of life who have decided to take that first step on the property ladder.
It often comes as somewhat of a surprise when I mention the word “Will” to them. The thrill of their property purchase takes the drivers seat as do discussions, or arguments as the case may be, on colour charts, wallpaper and what furniture to buy!
Many first time buyers are young couples at a very pivotal stage in their relationship, the property purchase is their next big step together and a Will is the last thing on their mind. But with one in six couples that live together being unmarried, we need to break down the misconception that Wills only need to be made in later life
