If you haven’t written a will, the government has written one for you! That's almost certainly not in the best interest of your family!
Writing your Will is one of the most important decisions you can make for you and your family so it’s imperative that you get it right first time.
The Rules of Intestacy are a complex set of rules relating to the distribution of your estate. Unless you want the Government to have the final say on what will happen to your house and money when you’re gone you must write a Will.
Writing your will ensures the people you most love and care about are remembered
- Appoint Guardians if you have children (Grandparents and Godparents have no legal status)
- Achieve significant protection from the threat of long term care home fees
- Ensure that your estate goes to your children should your spouse re-marry
- Reduce possible inheritance tax liability
- Protect your partner if you are not married.Partners – (except civil partnerships) regardless of how many years you may have been together have no legal status
- Choose the right people to sort out your estate out after death
- Your Situation can change from time to time so it’s also important that you review your Will on a regular basis. Contact us today to make an appointment and we’ll be happy to talk you through your options.
