Making a Will

We recommend that you make a Will, to ensure that your wishes are carried out and that only those who you want to benefit from your estate, are provided for. You can also nominate who you want to carry out those wishes on your behalf, by appointing Executors.

If you do not make a Will you will die intestate. This means that your assets will be divided between your family members, in a strict order of entitlement and this could mean the some or all of your assets could pass to a family member who you did not wish to benefit on your death.

If you have no family, your estate could even pass to the Government. By making a Will, you are ensuring that this will not happen.

Furthermore it is extremely important to make a Will, if you and your partner are not married or are in a civil partnership, if you have children from a previous relationship or you have step-children.
As we have stated above if you die intestate the law sets out who will inherit your assets and the list of potential beneficiaries does not include your partner.

A Will can also be used for the appointment of guardians for children. If you die intestate the opportunity to appoint a guardian that you trust to look after your children is lost.
