Why should you make a Will?

  • Making a will gives you control over what happens to your property after you die
  • To die without making a will is called "intestacy". If this happens, strict legal rules apply which decides the distribution of your property
    • Often this may not reflect how you would like things done
    • If you are married and have children, for instance, financial limits apply on how much your husband or wife can receive. It could mean that they retain the family home, but do not receive sufficient funds to afford to live there
    • If you are unmarried and have a partner the intestacy rules will not recognise that partnership

Case Example

Providing for your family in the future

We provide advice every day to clients about making Wills. Sometimes this discussion is more difficult than at other times. An elderly lady approached our solicitors after she had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. She had a large family and wanted to leave a little to everyone. We gave advice on ensuring her disabled son was properly provided for whilst ensuring the rest of the family and particularly her grandchildren each had a small legacy.

We had several delicate conversations with the client and then quickly produced a Will which was easy to understand and which gave her complete peace of mind.
