Why do you need a Will?
Having a Will in place is vital if you want to make sure that your estate is managed and distributed according to your wishes when you eventually pass away. If you do not have a Will, your estate will be subject to the rules of intestacy – and it is likely that many of your possessions will go straight to the state instead of to your loved ones.
Many of us put off making a Will until it’s too late. Some people find the whole process to be daunting and confusing, while others incorrectly believe that existing laws will automatically administer inheritances to important family members, such as their children or their spouse.
We cannot stress enough the importance of writing a Will with the specialist support of a probate solicitor. It’s the only way to make sure you’re safeguarding your possessions and planning your estate in the most tax-efficient way possible.
