Why You Need a Will

There are a number of ways in which creating a will can be extremely beneficial. Here are just a few:

Family-Trusts

Provides Peace of Mind

Having a will in place ensures that your wishes will be respected after you’ve gone. It reduces the risk of family disputes and leaves you safe in the knowledge that your loved ones will be looked after.

Family-Trusts

Protects Minor Children

A will can be used to nominate a guardian for minor children. This is essential in the unfortunate situation that both parents die. Without a will, it would be for a court to assign guardianship.

Family-Trusts

Helps Future Generations

Everyone wants to ensure that their loved ones can benefit from their estate. Wills can ensure step-families will be looked after, provide gifts for grandchildren, and even reduce Inheritance Tax.

Essential Will Writing Questions

Creating a will is an incredibly important process that has several essential questions you need to ask yourself. These include:

What Assets Do You Have in Your Estate?

Before you can decide exactly how your assets should be distributed, you will first of all need to understand what exactly will go into your estate and how much everything is worth. Examples of assets include savings, property, investments, life policies, and personal possessions. This can be especially useful in helping you decide if you want to make any gifts to reduce the overall value of your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes.

Who Will Your Beneficiaries Be?

The next step is to determine who you would like to benefit from your estate, such as family members and friends. You should also decide whether your beneficiaries will need special considerations put in place due to their age or vulnerability. This can be done by granting rights over an asset to a third party before passing it onto the intended beneficiary — for example until they turn a certain age.

Who Should Deal With Your Estate?

Appointing an executor is an extremely important part of making a will, as these are the people who will be in charge of distributing your assets after you’ve gone. You therefore need to think extremely carefully about who you want to appoint in this role, or whether you’d prefer to leave it in the hands of a solicitor or other professional. This is something we can help with ourselves.

Is There Anything Else You Will Need?

Creating a will is just one part of ensuring your assets and wishes will be protected, both while you’re alive and after you’ve gone. When thinking about your requirements, you may realise that you will benefit from a power of attorney, trust, or professional estate planning assistance as well. This is precisely what makes our home visits so important, as they give you an opportunity to go through exactly what matters to you and what options you have.

Common Will Writing Questions

What Happens if I Don’t Have a Will?

If you die without a will, your estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy. This means that some of your loved ones, including your partner if you’re not married, will not benefit from your assets after you’ve gone. Setting up a will ensures you can be confident that everyone you love will be taken care of exactly as you wish.

How Long Does it Take to Make a Will?

You may think that it takes an extremely long time to make a will, but this needn’t be the case. Our online wills can be done in just 30 minutes, while our home visit wills are sent to you after only 21 days.

Will I Need to Update My Will?

It is strongly recommended that you update your will every five years. Circumstances regularly change, such as a marriage or separation, the birth of a new child or grandchild, and the purchase or sale of property. We offer a service that lets you make simple amendments to your document as part of our Customer Care package.

What Makes a Will Valid?

For your document to be valid it must be signed in the presence of two witnesses, who must also add their signatures. A will has to be made by an individual over the age of 18 who was not under any duress and was of sound mind when the document was made.

Where Should I Store My Will?

You can store your will wherever is most convenient for you. However, given its importance, it is recommended that it is kept in a safe location rather than at home. We offer a secure document storage service that starts from just £30 per year.
