What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that allows you to state what should happen to your assets after you have passed away. Your Will can also:
- Appoint Executors - people who carry out the terms of your Will
- Appoint Guardians - people who will look after your children under 18 years old
- Name Beneficiaries - select family members, friends or charities you want to benefit from your estate
- Tax planning - help preserve wealth for future generations
- Protect against residential care costs
- Protect vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries
- State your funeral wishes
Why should I have a Will?
If you die in England or Wales without a valid Will then who inherits what is decided by the law. This may mean your partner is disinherited or your extended family members, with whom you are not in contact with, inherit or if there is no one else the state will get everything.
Should I update my Will?
We recommend that you review your Will every three years and certainly after any major life event such as marriage, death, divorce or a change in financial circumstances as otherwise it could affect who inherits your estate.
