Making a Will


Why Make a Will?

It is important to make a Will, no matter how old you are.  If you die without making a Will the Intestacy Rules determine who inherits your estate.  Contrary to popular belief, a spouse/civil partner does not necessarily inherit the whole of the other spouse’s/civil partner’s estate under the Intestacy Rules.  Where there are surviving children a spouse/civil partner only has the first £250,000 of the estate, all of the personal possessions and half the balance.  The other half is then divided equally between the surviving children.  This may mean that your spouse/civil partner does not inherit the whole of your home.

By making a Will you are ensuring that the people you want to benefit from your estate will inherit it.

You must have the mental capacity to make a Will so don’t make the mistake of thinking it can be left until you are on your deathbed; it may be too late then.
