The one thing most people don't care thinking about is making a will, but if you die and you haven't made a will your family may suffer delays, hardship and possibly costly legal bills.

By making a will you can decide what happens to your property and possessions after your death. Although you do not have to make one by law, it is the best way to make sure your estate is passed on to family and friends exactly as you wish. If you die without a will, your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes.
 

What is a Will?

 
A Will - often known as a Last Will or Last Will and Testament - is one of the most important documents that you will ever write, or be involved in writing.
 
The basic purpose of a Will is to outline the intentions of the writer with regard to their affairs after their death. These affairs are primarily financial, although a Will often covers other areas. The document will include several key elements, including the nomination of executors; an outline of the individual’s assets; a list of their dependants; a list of any debts the individual owes; a list of any debts which are owed to them; details of arrangements to be made for any children; and finally, the individual’s intentions with regard to the distribution of their estate.

Will Writing is not regulated by the FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY

Most common excuses for not having a Will:

 
  • We assume that our partners will automaticlly receive all of our estate
  • We think that we have nothing worthwhile to leave
  • We expect it is too expensive to set one up
  • We just haven’t gotten around to it!
          •  
             

Good reasons for having a Will:

 
  • Ensure probate is granted as quickly as possible
  • Ensure that a property is protected from being taken by the local authority to pay for the cost of care
  • Ensure that children are not disinherited by the remarriage of a spouse (sideways disinheritance)
  • Speed up the transfer of assets which otherwise could be in limbo for years
  • Ensure that an unmarried father is granted custody of his natural children
  • Ensure that your choice of Guardians will take care of your children rather than those appointed by the court
  • Ensure that a business is maintained for beneficiaries rather than it being closed due to probate delays
  • Ensure that an individual is excluded from your Will even if they would normally qualify as a beneficiary
