Why it is important to make a Will

Making a will is important. Even if you consider yourself to not have many savings or possessions, having a will in place can relive many stressful situations and put your loved ones at ease.

  • Making clear what your wishes are – If you do not write a will, your estate will be decided by the law. If you have a Will in place, you can make sure you provide for your loved ones without the added stress of them having to deal with lawyers.
  • Looking after your partner – If you have never married your partner but would like them to inherit your estate, you need to have this laid out in a Will, otherwise they will be ineligible.
  • Having a guardian set up for your children – If the unfortunate situation occurs where your child is left with no parents, you can set out in your will who you wish to take care of them. Otherwise, the court will appoint a guardian.
  • You can save on inheritance tax – In some cases, you will be able to reduce the amount of inheritance tax that needs to be paid on your estate if you have a written will.
