Why do I need a Will?
The simple answer is – to protect the people that you love.
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you do not make a valid Will, your property will pass under the laws of intestacy. This can have the following unintended consequences: –
I am not old enough yet and I don’t have much property. Why bother before I’m 40?
I am married/in a civil partnership. Surely everything will go to my partner anyway?
I don’t need a Will. My partner and I have a ‘common law marriage’.
Can I decide who looks after my minor children in my Will?
How often should I make a Will?
How quickly can you draft a Will?
