Why should I make a Will?

It’s important to understand what will happen to our estate if we die without a Will. We probably all understand that we should have a Will but the reality is that most of us don’t have one. In fact, it’s suggested that around two thirds of the population in England & Wales don’t currently have a valid Will in place. Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you have not made, or do not have a valid Will, your property will pass according to the Law of Intestacy. This may not be what you would have wished and may not be as you expect! 

If you are single

You might want your estate divided amongst friends, relatives and charities of your choosing and in the proportions you want.

If you are married

Don’t assume “my other half will get everything”. Brothers, sisters or parents may have a claim. Often your children have a right to part of your estate. If you are living as a couple but not officially married, you may be treated as a single person and a surviving partner may get nothing at all. 

If you are a parent

You should consider who you would like to look after your children in the event of your death. This is particularly important in the case of single parent families or unmarried parents living together. A valid Will nominating guardians is invaluable in such cases. If no one knows what you would have wanted, the Court will decide on the future of your children, and it may not be what you or your children would have wished.

If you are retired

Maybe you made a Will a long time ago. It probably needs updating to include additional grandchildren or deletion of persons you no longer feel you wish to leave anything to.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
