It is important to make a Will, no matter how old you are. You are ensuring that the people you want to benefit from your estate will inherit it.
About a third of people in the UK have made no provision at all for old age, whether through writing a will, contributing to a pension or creating a lasting power of attorney. This is quite worrying.
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.
