Why make a Will?
Making a Will is one of the most important things that you can do. As for most of us, what happens to our property and family when we die is a matter of great importance and therefore by making a Will, you can set out who administers your estate and who is to benefit and in what proportions. Without a Will, the intestacy rules will dictate what happens to your estate and this may not be in line with how you believe your property should be distributed upon your death.
A Will sets out who is to benefit from your Estate (money, property and possessions) after your death. There are many good reasons to make a Will, such as: -
∑ You can decide how your assets are shared
∑ If youíre an unmarried couple, you can make sure your partner is provided for
∑ You can make sure you donít pay more Inheritance Tax than necessary
∑ If you have children, you can choose guardians to look after them in their minority
Making a Will is the best way to ensure your Estate is passed on to family and friends exactly as you wish. It you die without a Will, your assets may be distributed according to the Law rather than your wishes.
Married couples often assume wrongly that they do not need to make a Will; they believe that when they die, everything would go to the surviving spouse. This is not true and failure to make a Will could cause unnecessary inheritance tax liability. So for married couples, a Will is essential.
By creating a Will you can ensure that your monies, personal belongings and property pass to the specific people you want and in a manner that you want.
