Everyone should have a will! Most people don’t.

Some think it is too complicated, too expensive or not necessary because they are not wealthy. Others put it off until it is too late.

However, making a will is not complicated, it is relatively inexpensive, and it provides many benefits.

  • If you do not have a will your assets may not pass to the people you wish. The laws of intestacy do not automatically pass all of your assets to your surviving spouse, and your children may be able to inherit assets at just eighteen years of age.

Making a will allows you to provide for your loved ones in a practical and sensible manner.

  • Making a will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death.
  • If you do not have a will, during the period it takes to administer your estate, your family and other beneficiaries may not be able to access the money in your estate.
  • If you do not prepare a will it usually takes longer for executors to administer your estate.
  • If you have minor children you can stipulate in your will who will look after them.
  • Depending on your circumstances you may be able to save inheritance tax by drafting your will efficiently.
