Why you should make a Will

It’s not too early but often too late!

Why you should make a Will

You can put off making a Will until it is too late and this poses all sorts of problems for the people left behind. Not making a Will could mean that some, or all of your inheritance either goes to the wrong person, or to the state. 

Making a Will enables you to plan exactly what will happen to your property (Estate) following your demise.  This ensures that those we would like to benefit actually do so, in accordance with your wishes, and at the same time avoiding any possible disputes between relatives.  Most importantly is the peace of mind making a Will provides.

Without a Will

  • You cannot be sure those you wish to benefit will actually do so. 
  • Your spouse will not automatically inherit All of your Estate
  • There could be lengthy delays for your Beneficiaries and disputes. 
  • Minor children could be taken into Care whilst Guardians are appointed
  • ‘Common Law’ partners may not receive anything.
  • You will not be able to leave something to friends, colleagues or charities, which fall outside of the Rules of Intestacy.

To the tax man I hereby leave you all the tax that I could have avoided and given to my family. 

To my bank and /or solicitor

I hereby authorise you to charge whatever you feel is appropriate, to sort out the mess that I have left behind. I realise that this could make you one of the major Beneficiaries of my Estate.

To everyone else

I leave nothing!

The absence of a Will can cause problems, heartbreak, financial hardship and unnecessary expense for your family, at the very worst possible time.
