Why Write a Will?

Writing a will is something that many of us put off and don’t like to think about. Around 50 – 60 percent UK adults don’t have a valid Will, yet it is incredibly important and not just for older people. Here are some of the reasons why...

  1. For Clarity
    A will makes it clear exactly who should inherit and how you would like to divide your estate when you are no longer around, helping avoid common family disputes that arise without a will which add to the stress placed on your loved ones.
  2. For Your Partner
    If you are not married or in a civil partnership, your partner is not legally entitled to anything without a will.
  3. For Your Children
    If you have children, a will is especially important as it allows you to express who you would like to care for your children in the event of your death, rather than leaving the decision to government agencies.
  4. For Your Friends
    If no living relatives can be traced, the crown gets everything. Friends will only inherit if mentioned in a will.
  5. Funeral Requests
    A will is a good place to express the wishes you have for your funeral arrangements.
  6. Reduce Inheritance Tax
    A will can help reduce the amount of inheritance tax paid on the value of your property and money you leave behind.
