Why you should write a will
There are many important reasons to write a Will, even if you think you don’t have much to leave, and expect it to all go to your spouse/partner. These include –
Without a Will, the law says who gets what. The Courts will appoint an Administrator to deal with your estate and decide who will look after your minor children (who may have to go into Local Authority care until that happens).
If you are not married or in a civil Partnership, then without a Will, your partner would not be entitled to receive any of your belongings when you die. He/she would have to go to court and prove financial dependence in order to get anything at all.
We can help you make proper arrangements for your dependants and to provide for other relatives, friends and favourite causes that would get nothing without a Will.
We will give guidance on the appointment of guardians, trustees and executors.
Inheritance Tax is becoming relevant to more and more people, due to the rising value of their property and other possessions. We can help you prepare for this eventuality by advising on how your estate can best be protected.
