WILLS & TRUSTS ADVICE
People put off making a Will for a variety of reasons, either believing they are too young to plan ahead or believing that the people they would wish to inherit will automatically do so, this results in not safeguarding your family's future.
However you can put off making a Will until it is too late and this poses many problems for your loved ones left behind and in the worst case scenario your inheritance could go to the wrong person or the state.
Safeguard your family’s future
Thinking about your Will and how you would like your assets to be passed after death can be an uncomfortable thing to do, however writing a Will can grant you the peace of mind of knowing that you have safeguarded the future of your loved ones. From the simplest Will to the most complex Estate we can advise on planning you would really like, rather than leaving your loved ones guessing what you may have wanted by not making a Will.
If you die without a Will…
If you die without a Will - intestate - the Laws of Intestacy will decide who inherits your Estate, dependant on a number of factors such as whether you are married or have children.
Without a Will…
- If you are not married your partner will not receive anything
- Ex-partners could make a claim on your Estate
- Children you have from a previous relationship may not receive anything
- You cannot be sure the people you wish to benefit would actually do so
- Children you have who are under 18 may be taken into care while the courts choose who looks after them
