Wills - The Benefits of Making a Will

advice on care

A will allows you to specify what you, not the government would like to happen to your money, property and possessions when you die. If you don't leave a will, (dying intestate) the law of intestacy, not you, decides who receives what and in what proportion and ultimately the government could even benefit. This may not be in line with your wishes.

Dying without a Will

  • You do not chose your executor
    (or person you want to distribute your wealth)
  • The rules of intestacy decide who get what and how much.
  • You cannot nominate specific legacies or make gifts
  • The Court decides who should look after any minors
  • No provision for specifying funeral wishes

With a Will

  • You appoint your executor
  • You chose who should inherit and who shouldn’t
  • You can leave specific gifts
  • You can appoint your own Guardians for children
  • You can make known your wishes

Although your parent or relative may have made their will - have you?

Don't delay. Make a will today.

Only an estimated 42% of UK adults have made a will* Even if you are one of them is your will still valid? Check –

  • Have you got married since making it as marriage will invalidate any existing one (unless it was made in preparation of the marriage)?
  • Have you got divorced or formed a new relationship since? Even divorce doesn't make a will invalid so if your will no longer reflects what you want – you should consider making a new one. If you have formed a new relationship will your current will provide adequately for any new partner or perhaps more importantly protect any of your own children you would still like to benefit from your own wealth?
  • Does your current Will nominate executors /beneficiaries by name? If it does are these still alive or able to deal with your affairs when you die? Have you had any new additions to your family who would perhaps not be provided for under your current will?
  • Perhaps more importantly – does your estate now exceed the current Inheritance Tax Threshold and would you now like to perhaps look at ways of owning any property in a more tax efficient way and to possibly minimise any care costs you may face for your own future care?

If you are one of those who are still to make one, or need to revise your existing one, don't delay any longer. Call us today and we would be pleased to discuss your wishes in more detail and arrange one for you.
