Why You Need a Professionally Written Will

A staggering 7 out of 10 adults in the UK do not have a Will.  Many people wrongly believe they are either too young or that their assets are insufficient to make having a Will worthwhile.

By not having a Will you run the risk of:

  • Your children being disinherited.
  • Your surviving spouse not inheriting everything.
  • Your partner having no automatic entitlement to your assets and being forced out of the family home.
  • Your home being sold.

By making a Will you will:

  • set out clear instructions of your precise wishes
  • appoint a guardian for your child or children
  • appoint an Executor to manage your affairs
  • save on inheritance tax
  • set out who will receive specific items
  • specify the kind of funeral service you would like
  • protect your assets for future generations
  • potentially help avoid your assets being used for nursing home fees
  • make it easier on your family when they are already experiencing an upsetting and distressing time

If you have already made a Will, it is usually a good idea to review it every five years. Many things can happen in your life such as moving home, getting a divorce or a separation or having children and grandchildren.

When your personal circumstances or finances change, it can impact on your Will. It is always best to seek professional legal advice before changing or altering your Will to avoid the risk of it becoming invalid or presenting problems to your Executors.
