  WILLS

Why Make a Will?

The obvious and perhaps most important reason to make a Will is to ensure that the right people inherit your estate when you die. If you do not have a Will, the law will direct who inherits your estate, so your friends, favourite charities may get nothing.

If you are not married, it is particularly important that you make a Will because the law does not automatically recognise partners as having the same rights as married couples. Even if you have lived with your partner for many years, your partner may be left with nothing from your estate if you die and have not made a Will.

Making a Will is also very important if you have children under 18 or dependants who may not be able to care for themselves if you die. Without a Will, there could be uncertainty about who will care for and provide for them if you die.

Finally, a will can minimise or avoid completely any Inheritance Tax that may be payable to the government when you die.

Other good reasons include:-
