Your Will

The importance of having a Will cannot be overstated

If you die without a Will there is a risk that your Estate will pass to family members that you dislike, to unknown family members, or to the Government. By leaving a Will you record your intentions in a legal document allowing you to gift your Estate to your intended beneficiaries.

If you have young children, you can protect them by naming Legal Guardians for their care with Trustees to assist them, in the event of your death.

If you are married, you can benefit your spouse with a gift from your Estate and maximise the available Inheritance Tax exemptions in your Estate.

If you are unmarried, you can ensure that your partner benefits from your Estate (without including such provision there is no guarantee that your partner will be protected - there is no such thing as a ‘common law spouse’ under UK law).

By having a Will it removes any uncertainty relating to your assets and belongings. It allows you to include your funeral wishes, and provides guidance to your family/ friends at a difficult and emotional time.
