Wills and Estate Planning

Dying suddenly happens every day. The good news is it hasn’t happened to you. But in life there are no guarantees.

Without a Will your spouse may not get everything they’re entitled to, as parents and siblings could be allocated a share under the rules. If you are unmarried your partner may get nothing.

Here are 12 important reasons for making a Will:

Which one is yours?

  • To save on inheritance tax when I die
  • To stop the council assessing my home to pay for care fees after I die if my spouse is taken in to care
  • To save a lot of trouble, expense and delay after I’m gone
  • To appoint a guardian to care for my young children
  • To make financial provision for my children’s future welfare
  • My partner and I have separate children and I don’t want mine to lose out
  • To make sure there are no arguments in the family
  • So my spouse’s family don’t get everything if we die together
  • We’re unmarried and neither will get anything when the other dies
  • I don’t want the government to decide who gets what
  • To prevent my home from being sold while someone still needs it
  • To make provision for my friends, favourite charities and/or pets
