Why do I need a Will?

Writing a Will ensures a more secure future for your family. If you die without one the law decides which members of your family inherit your possessions, which could mean that your estate is divided in a way you might not have chosen.

Many people think that their assets will automatically go to their partner if they die. This is not always the case. The only way to ensure that your estate goes to the people of your choosing is to write a Will.

Families are not always aware of all of the bank accounts or financial assets you hold. Setting these out in a Will makes sure that your family can access your money if you’re no longer around.

Preparing a Will is about more than just money. In your Will you can name a trusted person who will deal with your estate (known as an ‘executor’). The professional costs of administering an estate where there is no Will are far higher, and delays can cause financial hardship for families.

If you have children, you can also use your Will to nominate a legal guardian to look after them if you die. This can make life easier for any family members who take your children in.
Your Will can also provide details of funeral arrangements and ensuring that the costs are covered, making a difficult time easier for your loved ones.

As an adult you’re never too young to make a Will. It doesn’t matter how much or how little money you have. A Will is an important document for everyone, whatever their assets are. Find out more about our Will writing services today to organise yours quickly, easily and professionally.
