THE IMPORTANCE OF A
WILL AND PLANNING AHEAD 

There are many reasons why everyone should make a Will, some of which are listed as follows:

  • To make probate easier

  • To avoid your assets being distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules which means that a husband, wife or civil partner, or children will inherit

  • To nominate your preferred guardians of your children to avoid disagreements or family upsets

  • To take advantage of tax saving strategies

 

Things to consider including in your Will:

Who do you want as your Executors and who do you wish to benefit or exclude in your Will. You may also wish to put specific funeral arrangements in your Will.  It can be useful to have a memo of wishes if you have quite a few specific gifts you would like to leave to beneficiaries.  You may find it useful to download the funeral wishes document that Dying Matters have prepared which you can complete and have this made available for your loved ones. 
 

If you need to make a Will or require a Will review, please do call us for further guidance.

 

You may wish to make a record of your final wishes and you can do so by visiting: Onceivegone – which is a very helpful website.   You can then share this information with your loved ones once you’ve gone.
