What are the Benefits to Making A Will?

What are the Benefits to Making A Will?

When you make a Will, it gives you the opportunity of putting in order your affairs for after your death. We are all reluctant to contemplate our own death, but it is the one thing in life that is guaranteed! If you don’t leave a Will then the laws of intestacy step in, which will dictate what happens to your property and money.

What is Intestacy?

What is Intestacy?

If you have not made a Will you are leaving it to the State to determine how your assets should be distributed on your death. If you die without making a Will you will be deemed to have died “intestate”. The Intestacy Rules (which are set out in the Administration of Estates Act 1925) regulate who gets what if you die without making a Will.

DIY Wills: What are the Pitfalls?

DIY Wills: What are the Pitfalls?

Do-It-Yourself Wills are very common. We say “very” because we are always genuinely surprised people are willing to take the risk of writing a complex legal document when they can get a specialist, to professionally prepare a Will for a reasonable fee. Wills are one of the best “value for money” services offered by Estate Planning Practitioners. We aim to be entirely transparent about legal costs and will always make it clear to you at the outset.

When I’m gone

When I’m gone

How a simple list can help your loved ones after your death. Although it may not feel like it, your family finances are probably more precarious than you think. It’s all well and good when the breadwinners are healthy and working, but if something unfortunate were to happen, the outlook for those around you could change instantly. Research from Macmillan highlights the worrying fact that two in three people living in Britain don’t have a Will – including 42% of over-55s. Without an up-to-date Will, the law could supersede a person’s final wishes and leave treasured possessions, money, property and even dependent children with someone they may not have chosen. This news comes despite official guidance recommending that people review their Will every five years and after any major life changes, yet a quarter of Wills have not been updated for at least five years.
