‘Why is making a Will so important?’ you might ask one of our experienced lawyers in our Wills, Trusts and Probate department. The answer is simple, making a Will puts you in control of what happens to your assets and personal effects after you die.
If you die without making a Will, your estate is distributed under the rules of intestacy and relatives could inherit your estate against your wishes.
By making a Will you can:
- mitigate the Inheritance Tax implications on your future estate;
- protect your assets for your beneficiaries (including vulnerable beneficiaries, beneficiaries going through a divorce, future re-marriage of your spouse or civil partner etc.)
- exclude estranged family members from inheriting and potentially protect your estate from any future claims;
- leave a gift for a charity you have supported throughout your lifetime;
- distribute your personal effects (including jewellery, paintings, cars etc.).
