It’s never too early but often too late!

Everyone should have a Will, but 2 out of 3 people have not yet made a Will and those that have, may not have a correct or valid Will in place. You MUST have mental capacity to make a valid Will so this is another reason why it is better to do it as early as possible to give you peace of mind you have a Will in place.

 

No Will – Intestacy

If you die without a will, this is called dying intestate. The rules of intestacy set out who will inherit your assets, and how much. This may not be what you would have wished for, and in the worst case scenarios where relatives cannot be traced, your assets may be taken by the government. Minor Children will be appointed Guardians by the State. Spouse/Civil Partner will not automatically inherit all of your Estate and Common Law’ partners may not receive anything. You will not be able to leave something to friends, colleagues or charities, which fall outside of the Rules of Intestacy.

The vast majority of people put off making a Will – why?

1

They wrongly believe their Children will be taken care of by people of their choice.

2

They wrongly believe that the people they wish to inherit will do so automatically.

3

They think they always have tomorrow, so they put off what they can do today, but tomorrow is never promised

4

They think nothing will ever happen to them!

Making a Will allows YOU to decide

Appoint guardians for your children

You choose who will care for your children in the event of your death, ensuring they are looked after by Guardians you have personally selected and who you believe have the means and ability to care for them. Without Guardians, your children may go into the care system. 

Who benefits from your Estate

You can appoint beneficiaries to your Estate, ensuring your hard earned assets are left to those you wish to benefit from them.

Minimise the risk of Family Disagreements

Family disagreements are very common unfortunately when a family is left to divide up your Estate in the event you die Intestate. You can prevent this by making your wishes known in a written legal document known as a Will. 

Leave Legacies to Friends and Charities of your choice

You can choose to leave Legacies to Friends that are really important to you, especially when you have no family. A Charity may also be dear to your heart and you may want to leave something to help their great cause.

Make your Funeral Wishes known

You can make sure that your Will includes details on how you would like your Funeral to take place, removing the stress from people left behind having to think about and deal with this at what is an already very emotional time for them. 

We also offer a range of Funeral plans to take away the financial burden from loved ones. Please contact us for more information and a brochure.
