There are many reasons why you should make a will but sadly most of us just do not bother to arrange a will and if they do organise a will they do not review the will on a regular basis. Its really easy to make a will it probably takes an hour of your time but this is a valuable hour as it produces a document which legally arranges and informs everyone what happens to your money, possessions and property after you die. If you have children who will look after them when you die? Is there someone you do NOT want to be their guardian? This is just one reason why you should make a will.
A will can make things easier to sort everything out when you die - who looks after children, who inherits property, who inherits specific items. Having a will is vitally important if you have children or family that are financially dependent on you.
Having a will can tell people who receives your property, money and personal possessions when you die and it also tells everyone who will be organising your estate and following the instructions which you had written into your will.
But what happens if you do not leave a will - If you do not have a will when you die then your money, property and possessions will be shared out according to the current law at the time of your death. This means that people can receive things that you hadn't intend for them to receive.
Did you know that if you are not legally married or in a civil partnership then your partner is not legally entitled to anything.
