Making a Will

Why do you need a Will?

A Will dictates what you would like to happen to your Estate following your death and is a key element in estate planning. Without a will you are unable to control what happens to your assets after death and the law will determine how your estate will be distributed. So your family, friends and other receiving parties may not receive what you wish them to, and those you leave behind will have to cope with legal complications on top of losing a loved one.

Many married people believe that their possessions would automatically go to their partner. However without a Will, that is not necessarily the case. Also if you are not married, your partner may actually receive nothing.

Ensure that your estate is distributed exactly as you wish
