Why you should have a Will?
You may own a house or flat, shares, savings, investments as well as your personal possessions. All these things together are called your estate. Your will tells everyone what should happen to your estate after you die.
Everyone should have a will, but it is even more important if you marry, been previously married, have children, you own property or have savings, investments, insurance policies or you own a business.
What happens if I don’t make a will?
If you die without a valid will, you have no say in what happens to your estate. Instead, the rules of intestacy will divide your estate in a pre-determined way amongst specific members of your family and this may not be to people who you wished to benefit. Furthermore, the intestacy rules may not produce the most tax-efficient way of distributing your estate.
