Make a Will
Writing a Will gives you the certainty and comfort from knowing that your estate (your property and possessions) will be passed on exactly as you want upon your death.You'll be able to appoint a trusted Executor (What is an Executor?), nominate the beneificiaries and avoid any unnecessary expense and delays in the division of your estate after you've gone.
Everybody should have a Will - yet statistics show only about a third of us do!
Without a will, the government will decide who gets what from your belongings and how much, so those who you would want to benefit may get far less than you hoped. Many people assume that their estate will automatically go to their spouse or children but this is not necessarily the case. It is decided by the laws of intestacy which can mean a long and expensive probate process for your loved ones.
It is recommended that you seek the advice and services of an experience solicitor when making your will to ensure it is valid and properly set out.
