Everything will go to my nearest relative anyway

Everything will go to my nearest relative anyway

Not necessarily.  You may think that when you die your next of kin for example your husband, wife or child, will automatically receive the whole of your estate. This is not always so and is this really a risk you are happy to take ?


If you were to die without having made a Will, the laws of intestacy will apply and it is those rules which will govern who gets what. For example, in the case of someone who dies leaving a husband or wife and children, the husband or wife can find that they are sharing the estate with the children, this might not be ideal.


In making a Will you are also able to appoint an executor of your choice and you can also appoint guardians for your young children
