Making a Will
Whether you’ve just bought your first home, are planning for your children’s future or just getting your affairs in order, we can help you tick an important job off your to-do list - your Will.
Why should I make a Will?
Wills are an important legal document that ensures after you die your assets such as your home, savings, investments and belongings go to the right people in accordance with your wishes. Without a Will, you cannot be sure that those you wish to benefit will actually do so.
Without a Will:
- Your spouse or civil partner may not automatically inherit all of your estate.
- If you’re not married your ‘common law’ partner will not receive anything.
- If you have children, under the age of 18, they would be taken into care whilst guardians are appointed.
- There could be lengthy delays for your beneficiaries and possible family disputes.
Many people put off making a Will until it is too late. Put simply, not having a Will could mean that your inheritance might not be left to your preferred beneficiary or may be left to the state.
