Did you know that 7 out of 10 people do not make a Will?
Make your wishes known – don’t let the Government decide. Without a Will your property could end up in the wrong hands. When someone dies without making a Will, they die ‘intestate’ which means that their estate must be divided in accordance with the Intestacy Rules.
Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you make in your lifetime. By making a Will you can ensure that, your financial affairs can be administered with the minimum amount of distress and anxiety to your loved ones.
A Will allows a person to express their wishes and control how their property is distributed in the event of their death. For example, if you have a precious piece of jewellery or family heirloom, you can direct to whom it will pass.
