A will is an important legal document that is used to disburse your assets in a manner that you approve of in the event of your death. It contains who you appoint as an executor, who is to benefit from your will whilst also providing peace of mind of any instructions you might have for your loved ones.
Why should I make a Will?
Wills are useful for a variety of reasons as they allow you to:
- Provide clarity and finality to your family about what you wanted whilst reducing any potential for dispute.
- Choose your executor and beneficiaries.
- Ensure your wishes are carried out in a legally enforceable manner.
- Take care of people that were dependent on you like your children.
How do I make a Will?
A will must be signed by the person the will is for, witnessed and signed again by 2 witnesses who are not beneficiaries of the will. An executor must be appointed to ensure that debts are paid, as well as assets go where you intended for them to go. It is important to involve a solicitor in this process to ensure the validity of your will, that your wishes have been expressed clearly, advise on best way to arrange your estate, and warn of potential family provision claims against it.
