Why Make A Will?
If you die without making a Will, then the law determines who gets your property.
You should make a Will if you:-
- Want to appoint someone to act as a guardian to your child or children.
- Live with a partner to whom you are not married or in civil partnership. A “common law partner” does not inherit your property if you die without leaving a Will.
- Want some or all of your property to go to a favoured charity.
- Have recently married or if you get re-married.
- Get a divorce.
- If you wish to reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable on your death.
- Wish to deal with long-term care costs.
