Why everyone needs a Will

Why Everyone Needs a Will! Icon

A Will provides peace of mind – you know that your estate will pass to the people of your choice.

Here are just some of the reasons for making a Will:

  • To provide for your partner, a specific relation, a friend or a charity
  • To ensure your and your partner’s joint estate is shared between both of your families should you and your partner die together
  • To enable the future running of your business
  • To appoint guardians and trustees for your children
  • To appoint willing and able executors
  • To provide someone with a right to continue living in your home
  • To protect your estate for your children from a previous relationship
  • To ensure life insurance passes to the people of your choice
  • To ensure your house can be retained by your family
  • To protect your estate from the cost of residential/nursing care that you or your partner might one day require
  • To save inheritance tax on your own or your partner’s estate
  • To protect your estate from claims against your beneficiaries’ estates (eg on divorce/bankruptcy)
  • To exclude a specific relation
  • To compensate for any lifetime gifts you may have made
  • To secure your pets’ future
  • To avoid family arguments about who gets what
