Research has shown that approximately 60% of the UK adult population do not have a valid will and risk dying intestate!
If you want to be sure your wishes will be met after you die, then a will is vital. Here are 6 reasons why it’s important to make a will.
A will is the only way to make sure your savings and possessions (your estate) go to the people and causes that you care about.
Although it’s hard for loved ones to talk about death, talking about your will can save everyone a lot of worry and hassles.
Disputes over wills can cause arguments among family members and may even need a solicitor to resolve them. Leaving a will should remove any doubt about who you want to leave your estate to.
A will can ensure assets are kept within the family and are passed down the generations.
With a carefully planned will, you can also cut the Inheritance Tax bill.
Your will can be a way to let people know whether you would prefer to be buried or cremated.
