Making a Will is important for everyone. It is of particular importance for those who are unmarried, those with step children or young children, those with substantial estates or those who would wish their estate to be dealt with in a way which is at all out of the ordinary.
Making a Will means you can choose who inherits your estate. If you do not make a Will then the law decides. This may mean that what actually happens does not adequately reflect your wishes. For example your husband or wife will not automatically inherit the whole of your estate. If you are not married then your partner will not inherit anything.
You can also arrange specific gifts to specific people. You can name executors to ensure your wishes are met. You can also appoint guardians for your young children. You can express your wishes in relation to your funeral and you can arrange your affairs to minimise the impact of inheritance tax or care home fees on your estate.
