Making a Will
Why should I make a Will?
Everyone should have a Will. We spend our lives working to provide for ourselves and our loved ones and without a Will we may fail to pass our hard earned assets onto the people we want to benefit. If you haven’t made a Will the law determines who gets your assets on your death under the rules of intestacy. The intestacy rules may not distribute your assets to the people you want to benefit from your estate. Making a Will makes sure that when you die your assets go to the people you choose and your estate is dealt with in the way that you want.
Anyone who has children, owns a property, has savings, owns a business or has life insurance policies needs to make a Will. If you are not married your partner will not inherit any part of your estate under the rules of intestacy which could leave them in financial hardship on your death. A Will not only says who gets your assets on your death but also allows you to choose who looks after any of your children if you die before they are 18. Without a Will you have no say in this.
