Why make a Will?
Even if you don't own property it is important to make a Will.
Making a Will means you can rest assured with the knowledge that your possessions and property will be divided up in line with your wishes, and it will be easier for your family to manage your affairs when you die.
If you don't leave a Will:
- you risk much of your estate going to the government in Inheritance Tax
- the people you would like to benefit from your estate, may not be provided for
- your partner will not automatically inherit from you if you're not married or in a civil partnership
- there will be no arrangements to look after any children you leave behind
- your family may find it difficult to settle your affairs.
Changing an existing Will
You may have to change your Will if you remarry or have a child for example. Often you can use a codicil to make a small amendment. But if you are making big changes, it's usually best to draw up another Will.
If you're not sure what you need to do, then please do get in touch. We will be happy to discuss your proposed changes and rewrite your Will in the most appropriate way for you.
