Thinking about the future: Writing a Will

Nobody likes thinking about their death or what will happen to their possessions after they’ve passed away. But writing a Will and taking the time to think about the future can make a positive difference to the people you will leave behind.

Why should I write a Will?

Creating a Will can make life easier for your family as a Will outlines who gets what and reduces the risk of your family arguing over your estate. It’s important to realise that if you die before making a Will, you’ll have no say over where your assets go. Instead, the courts will decide who your possessions will be given to, meaning that some people may get left out or your assets may go to people you would have chosen to disinherit.

The solution? Write a Will that outlines where your estate should go. Doing this will ensure that your assets are going to the people you care about. You can leave your house to the children, your car to your best friend and even a cash lump sum to your dog!
