Many people think that making a Will is something you only need to think about in the later stages of life. Others may not ever consider writing a Will at all.
However, a Will is vital for legally protecting your wishes and your loved ones in the event of your passing and we strongly recommend drawing up a Will to safeguard your property and/or assets.
A properly drawn up Will gives you real peace of mind. You can make provision for your partner and family, and rest safe in the knowledge that your wishes will be carried out.
On passing, if you do not have a Will, your assets including your personal possessions, cash, bank accounts, investments, pensions and property will default to the rules of intestacy which may mean that your property, money and other assets could be left to someone you aren’t comfortable with. For example, your estate might pass to a family member you have fallen out with.
A Will written by us, as legal experts can address who the Beneficiaries are in a clear, effective and legally valid way, unlike other available options such as Do It Yourself (DIY) Wills that can be downloaded from the internet for seemingly cheap prices. Often these options can create far more problems than they solve.
