Writing a Will may not be at the top of your to do list, but despite the procrastinations, superstitions and anxieties of creating a Will, it is extremely important to do so.
Fact of the matter is, if you have any kind of asset, be it life cover, pension, property or savings, writing a Will isn’t something that you should delay - no matter what age!
Dying intestate (passing away without a Will) means that your estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy – families are estimated to lose an average of £9,700 of assets if a Will has not been produced!
Even when there is a Will, they have the potential to cause turmoil amongst loved ones – two sisters have even squabbled over who inherited a spoon!
Families often find themselves saying “we never thought this would happen to us” as they’re sat squabbling over inheritance. No one can predict when an issue might erupt within their family and the best way to protect your legacy is to ensure that you have a well-drafted and up-to-date Will. It is NEVER too early to produce one, but often too late.
