Why make a Will?

Why make a Will?

A Will is one of those things that everyone should have; and yet only about a third of people ever bother. None of us like to think about our own death but when it happens your property and affairs will need to be dealt with. By making a Will, you can ensure they are dealt with in the way that you would want, and that any specific intentions which you have for the disposal of your home, money or possessions are carried out.

 

A surprising number of people have not quite got around to making a Will.   Whether it is a superstitious fear that thinking about death will bring it closer, or whether it is just one of those tasks that never makes it to the top of the list.

 

Without a Will you leave your estate to be divided in accordance with the laws of intestacy which may not reflect your wishes.   Co-habitation, divorce and re-marriage are all increasingly common, without a valid Will; partners and step-children may well lose out.

 

Appointing guardians for your children is also an important reason to make a Will making sure that those children are provided for both legally, emotionally and financially.

 

Worried about paying for care home fees or paying inheritance tax on your estate, taking advice and making a Will can assist with both of these facts of life and will hopefully alleviate those worries.

 

It is not as costly or as complicated as you may think nor will it bring mortality here any quicker.
