If you die without a Will your estate will be administered under the "rules of intestacy" meaning that the Law dictates who will receive a share of your estate. As this may conflict with your intentions it is important to put your wishes in writing via a Will.
There are a number of reasons to make a Will but you should especially think about having a Will if you:
- Have assets in your sole name
- Are co-habiting but not married
- Are separated but not divorced
- Recently got married and made a Will prior to that marriage
- Have children under the age of 18
- Have children from a previous relationship
A Will is a very personal document and must be tailored carefully to each individual and their circumstances so we would meet with you first to discuss your wishes and advise you accordingly. We would then prepare a draft Will so that you can make sure it meets with your approval and once everything is in order we will arrange to have the Will signed in the presence of 2 independent witnesses. It's that simple.
