Last Will and Testament
Making a Will is your opportunity to outline your wishes, and leave a legacy for your loved ones. Many people assume that their partner or children will inherit anyway, but this isn’t always the case. The law sets out the rules of Intestacy which means that means your assets may not go to who you want them to go to, or be divided in fixed proportions that may not suit your family. And if you are cohabiting then your partner has no legal claim to your estate, regardless of how long you have been together.
Many people think that making a Will is only important for older people, but it’s also important for the younger generation. Have you decided who you would want to look after your children if you weren’t here? Guardians need to be appointed in your Will. You might also want to consider what happens to your pets and any sentimental items, as well as your home and other assets.
Clients often comment how much better they feel after putting their plans into place legally. Making a Will provides you with peace of mind and ensures that the legacy you leave removes worry, stress and misunderstanding for your loved ones.
