Making a will is essential if you want to be sure of leaving your property and possessions to your loved ones and is extremely important to protect your family's future.
A will allows you to:
- provide clarity on a whole range of practical matters
- appoint guardians to have legal responsibility for looking after your children
- protect your assets for your family and future generations
- name trusted individuals to handle the administrative side of dealing with your estate
If you have assets over £325,000 then your estate may have to pay inheritance tax. A professionally drafted will, together with the right tax planning advice, can reduce the amount of tax payable to the legal minimum.
If you do not make a will then the law dictates what happens to your estate and that may not be what you want. The Rules of Intestacy do not make provision for unmarried partners, step-children or friends.
