The most important legal document you will ever sign

The most important legal document you will ever sign

*Will writing service is offered by referral to a third party.

Most people put off writing a Will. They don’t think about who will be beneficiaries of their estate, or even who would act as guardians to their children. Some otherwise perfectly reasonable people believe a terrible event will befall them if they make out their will.

But the simple fact is this. If you don’t make a will, you cannot guarantee what happens with your estate after you die. There could be arguments between family members that survive you, and if legal professionals are called in they can become major beneficiaries in their own right.

Did you know? Without a valid Will and careful inheritance planning:

  • Your husband, wife or partner may not automatically inherit. 
  • Guardianship of children under 18 may be unclear, leaving the courts to decide their welfare. 
  • Your home may be sold without your consent and the proceeds used for care home fees. 
  • Your loved ones could be liable for a 40% tax bill. 
  • A special gift, intended for a child, friend or charity may not reach them.

If you die in England or Wales without a valid Will the government will decide who gets what.

Things to Consider when Writing a Will

  • How much your estate is worth?
  • Who do you want to inherit your property?
  • Who should look after your estate when you pass away?
  • How can you protect yourself if your circumstances change?
  • How can you protect your children or any vulnerable dependents?
