Why make a will?
Making a Will is the only way to ensure your wishes are carried out after your death by those you trust (your Executors). If you have not made a valid Will, your property and other assets will pass according to the Law of Intestacy, which may not be what you would have wished. In any event it is likely to take much longer to finalise than if you had made a Will, and while things are being sorted out your beneficiaries may not be able to draw any money from your estate, which can result in arguments and distress for family and other relatives.
Decide your children’s future – don’t leave it to the courts. If you die without nominating a guardian and your children are orphaned, they are likely to be placed in the care of Social Services.
Pass your estate on quickly and without argument. Passing on property and assets is likely to take much longer without a will, and your beneficiaries may not be able to draw money from your estate quickly.
Protect the family home and other assets from care costs. Do not assume that your spouse will automatically inherit everything. A well structured will can help protect the family home and other assets.
Ensure that your civil partner is respected in your will. If you are living as a couple but not officially married, without a will your surviving partner may get nothing at all.
Make sure your money goes to your chosen friends and family. Having a simple will can ensure that your money is passed on without any undue confusion or delay.
Update your will for recent legislation and changes in circumstances. If you made a will when your priorities and assets were different, there may be a need now to review your instructions.
