For your peace of mind
If you live in England or Wales and die without writing a legally valid will, the government will decide who gets what. If you have no living family members, all your property and possessions will go to the Crown. If you have children under 18 years old, other people can make decisions about who will take care of the children and manage their finances, education and living arrangements. By making a will you can specify your wishes.
A will is a legal document that allows you to state what should happen to your assets (your money, property, investments and possessions) as well as your young children after you have passed away.
A will is one of the most important legal documents you will ever sign. If you die without a valid will in England or Wales the law can decide who has responsibility for children under 18 and who receives your money, property, cars, pets and all your other belongings.
Your will deals with your belongings (property, bank accounts, personal possessions etc.) that you own at the time of your death and not at the time you write your will. So even if you don’t have much to leave now, your financial situation could change significantly in the future, particularly if you expect to have paid off your mortgage or are likely to receive an inheritance at some point.
Making a will clarifies your wishes and enables you to give your loved ones financial protection after you die.
Many people assume that making a will is complicated, but with the right advice and a specialist will writer to help you every step of the way, we make the will writing process easy.
Before you start to think about how to make a will, there are some decisions that you’re going to need to make.
These include: – Which type of will you want to make – Who you’d like to inherit from you – Who you’d like to look after your children (if they’re under 18) – Whether you’d like to leave anything to charity – Who you’d like to deal with your estate after you die
