Why should I make a Will?
• Writing a Will enables you to decide how your money and possessions are shared out. (your estate)
• Without a Will you die Intestate. (Intestate means your wishes are ignored and the state decides who inherits your money and possessions)
• Writing a Will can help speed up the process of sharing out money and possessions.
• Without a Will the process of sharing out your money will take much longer to sort out. (Possibly months or years!) This may cause extra distress and money worries for your family at an already emotional and stressful time.
• Writing a Will ensures your partner is provided for.
• Without a Will if you and your partner are not married or in a civil partnership under the rules of Intestacy they will not inherit any of your money or possessions.
• Writing an appropriately drawn Will can avoid costly care home fees and inheritance tax.
• Without an appropriately drawn Will your loved ones could end up selling the family home to pay for costly care fees and inheritance tax.
• Writing an appropriately drawn Will can protect your money and possessions from leaving the bloodline of your family.
• Without an appropriately drawn Will your money and possessions will be under threat from outside family influences.
• Writing a Will enables you to decide on the sort of funeral you want.
