There is a new page added to the Making a Will section:
With more than two thirds of the UK population not having a will, it’s important to know what would happen should you die intestate.
The reasons to make a will are explained in our page The Importance of Making a Will which explains some of the benefits:
- Leaving your assets to people YOU choose
- Ensuring partners/dependants are taken care of
- Financial considerations (including inheritance tax advice)
Making a will does not have to be costly and you can even do it yourself free of charge (although we recommend at least getting it checked over by a qualified person to ensure it is legally acceptable to avoid any chance of dispute in the future).
There is more information in our How to Make a Will page.
Within the Making a Will section we have related pages which can be useful when making these arrangements.
For instance, Advice on Planning Your Funeral. Whilst no-one likes to think of these things, unfortunately they are a fact of life. It’s best to ensure that your funeral is how you would like it, which will give you peace of mind as well as making life a little bit easier for those who are making the arrangements in the future.
We will be adding more pages soon to the Making a Will section.
