People put off making a Will for a variety of reasons, either believing that those they would wish to inherit will automatically do so, or because they don’t think it is relevant to them at this particular time.
Life can change immediately
The reality is that life can change immediately, with no warning. The result being you put off making a Will until it’s too late, creating a complicated situation for the people left behind. It could mean that some or all of your inheritance either goes to the wrong person or to the state.
Everyone needs a Will
Everyone needs to make a Will, in particular anyone with dependants. Anyone who owns a property or has any type of asset which you would wish relatives, friends or charities to benefit from should also make a Will.
Plan what will happen to your estate
Making a Will enables you to plan exactly what will happen to your property (estate) following your demise. This ensures that those you would like to benefit actually do so in accordance with your wishes and at the same time avoiding any disputes between relatives.
