Why should I make a Will?
It’s very important to understand what will happen to our belongings, property or savings (our estate) if we die without making a valid Will.
It is common knowledge that we should have a Will in place, after all we are ALL going to pass on at some stage, but unbelievably a high percentage of adults in the UK, still do not have a valid Will in place, this is even more amazing when you consider that making a Will is the only way we can ensure our wishes are carried out about who gets what after our death.
If we die without having a valid Will in place, this means we have died intestate and the law will pass what we own under intestacy rules and this will very probably not be what we wanted, but it will be too late to do anything about it.
Dying without a Will results in it taking longer to administer your estate than it would if you had a Will and during this time, your beneficiaries may not be able to draw any money from your estate, plus it can lead to fall out, arguments and a lot of distress for your loved ones.
Having a professionally drafted Will can help to ensure the above worries are covered for you.
