A Will is a legal declaration setting out how you wish to dispose and deal with your assets on death.
Nobody likes to talk about death and more than 70% of the population does not have a current Will which accurately reflects their financial circumstances and personal choices at the time of their death.
Why Make a Will?
A will guides those who are left behind and saves worry and heartache at a time of great emotional stress.
Making a Will creates certainty, reduces worry and gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly how your money, property and possessions will be dealt with on your death.
If you have no living relatives, in the absence of a Will your Estate can be forfeit to the Crown.
It can safeguard property and minimise your liability in Inheritance Tax. It can preserve Business and Agricultural Relief.
If you do not have a Will whilst any joint assets will pass to the surviving holder, a surviving spouse does not always inherit all your Estate.
