Reasons for making a Will

Reasons for making a Will

A Will allows you to have control of what happens to your money, property and possessions upon your death. It is also your final bit of communication when you pass away.

Whether or not you consider yourself to have many possessions or much money, it is still important to make a Will.

There is a common misconception that only those that are elderly, those with loads of money or complicated financial affairs need a will. That’s simply not the case.

To better understand the Wills and Trusts, we have some helpful videos. Click here to view them.

Why do you need a Will?

There are many reasons why you should have a Will in place. Here are some of out top reasons.

Control what happens to your money, property and possessions

If you die without a will, UK law will dictate how your money, property or possessions will be distributed. This may not be the way that you would have wished.

If you are unmarried...

Partners who are unmarried and partners who have not registered a civil partnership cannot inherit from each other unless there is a will in place. This may create serious financial problems for your other half

To Keep Families Together

Your loved ones aren’t left without unanswered questions which are what usually break families apart or cause family disputes. Your family and other beneficiaries will have your wishes clearly laid out and our ‘Just To Let You Know’ booklet was designed to help with this in mind. This leaves less room for family disputes over who should get what.

If your circumstances have changed

If your circumstances have changed, it is important that you make a will to ensure that your money and possessions are distributed according to your wishes. For example, if you have separated and your ex-partner now lives with someone else, you may want to change your Will. If you are married or enter into a registered civil partnership, this will make any previous will you have made invalid.

Reduce the stress for your loved ones

After the death of a loved one, there is alot of pressure left on those dealing with your estate.

For your children

If you have children, it is extremely important to ensure the necessary arrangements can be made if either one or both parents die. You can specify who you would like to be their guardian and not let the courts make that decision.

Make your funeral arrangements clear

You can set out what kind of funeral you would like and how you wish for that to be. You may prefer to be cremated or buried as well as the choice of music you would like to be played.

Avoid intestacy rules

If you die without making a Will, your money, property and possessions will be divided according to set rules rather than your wishes.

Reduce your Inheritance Tax

If your estate is worth more than £350,000 it is liable for Inheritance Tax. Making arrangements in your Will and with our specialist advice can ensure you don’t pay any more than you need to.

Alot of what we hold close to us today is kept and accessed digitally. Our photos, social media accounts and password protected documents. A Will can help protect these and give those with permission access to this.
