Will Writing and Estate Planning

Many people fail to make a Will or have an out-of-date Will which no longer reflects their wants or needs following changes in circumstances such as divorce, the birth of a child, moving house or finding a new partner. If you already have a Will, it is essential to ensure that you review your Will regularly.

 

Why should you make a Will?

1. Making a Will gives you the power to decide who will inherit your assets and how they will be shared out - if you don't make a will, the     law says who gets what and this may not accord with your wishes

2. If you aren't married or in a civil partnership your partner will not inherit automatically

3. Making a Will can help you to mitigate the amount of inheritance tax your beneficiaries may pay
