Making a Will

Making a Will allows you to control what happens to the assets which you have accumulated during your lifetime. A Will also enables you to protect your family and friends and control who should look after those dearest to you.

If you do not make a Will, you will die intestate. This means that strict legal rules apply as to how your money and property is distributed.

 

Should I make a Will?

 

Ask yourself the following:-

  • Do you own any assets? (Bank Account, Property etc)
  • Do you have children?
  • Do you have young children, would you feel safer appointing a legal guardian in case
    something happens to you?
  • Are you married or in a civil partnership?
  • Are you divorced or going through divorce proceedings?
  • Are you separated?
  • Would you like advice to minimise Inheritance Tax so that your family benefit and not
    the tax man?

 

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, then it is strongly advisable that you make a Will.
