Making a Will

Making a Will

Your Will sets out what should happen to your estate when you die.  If you don’t leave a Will, the law decides on how your estate is passed on, and this might not be in line with your wishes.  It also saves your family any unnecessary distress at a difficult time.  Other benefits of writing a Will include the ability to plan for inheritance tax and for those with children, a Will has a very important function of establishing guardianship of your children.

Basically, your Will tells people two important points:

Who should inherit your money, property and possessions when you die, and who is in charge of organising your estate.
