Making a Will is one of the most important things you’ll ever do. We spend our lives looking after our loved ones so why wouldn’t we want to make sure they’re protected when we’re no longer here?
Making a Will is, understandably, one of those things we all tend to put off. However it really is something everyone needs to do in order to:
Many people are under the belief that their loved ones will automatically inherit what they would have wanted or expected. However without a Will our loved ones, including partners, children and grandchildren, can be left vulnerable and unprotected.
If a person dies without a Will, their assets are inherited under the rules of intestacy. Under these rules children and grandchildren would not inherit anything if you were a) married and b) had assets that amounted to less than £250,000. This could cause potential conflict especially if you had children from a previous relationship.
Alternatively an unmarried partner has no right to an inheritance; your children, grandchildren, parents even the government would inherit your estate ahead of your partner. Their only hope would be to make a claim against your estate – which could, in reality, be a claim against their own children!
