We all know the importance of making a Will, yet only about a third of us get around to making even basic provisions for our loved ones.
By writing a Will and making sure you review it when your circumstances change, you are safeguarding your loved ones from unnecessary future emotional stress and financial worries in the event of your premature death.
It’s a common mis-conception that assets automatically pass to a spouse or registered civil partner on death, but if you don't have a Will in place your estate will be distributed under the UK rules of intestacy, which means the law decides who inherits your estate and in what proportions.
The Rules of Intestacy aim to take care of spouses, registered civil partners and biological children. However, they don't make provisions for unmarried partners, step children, friends, pets and charities. Without a Will your property and possessions may end up in the hands of those who you may not have wished to inherit.
