As the old saying goes, ‘You can’t take it with you when you go’, more to the point if you don’t make a Will the state may get your estate and not the people that you would prefer to have it!
Making a Will is the best way of expressing ones wishes in advance so that a person’s intentions will be honoured in Law on their behalf following their demise. Not making a Will is called being ‘intestate’ and it means that one’s good intentions may never be known or acted upon, more to the point it can make the job of those remaining much harder and cause enormous upheaval and distress to the ones that you may wish to protect.
It is hard to believe but more than 70% of the United Kingdom’s population do not have an up to date Will in place. The absence of a Will may cause delays in lawful recipients having access to the estate which may involve bank accounts being frozen and personal insecurity for those remaining.
Making a Will creates certainty, reduces worry and gives both administrators and remaining family and other recipients the peace of mind of knowing exactly how the money, property, and possessions will be dealt with after your passing. A Will can ensure the funeral of choice also.
