Making A Will

A Will is a legally binding document that ensures that your wishes regarding your estate are carried out after your death. It provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones and ensures your wishes will be carried out exactly as you want.

If you do not have a Will, your estate may be distributed according to intestacy rules in which everything does not automatically pass to your partner or spouse and your possessions may not be distributed as you would have wished. And planning your will can also reduce Inheritance Tax (gifts to charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax)

It is advisable to seek legal advice in order to draw up your Will. A Will need not be absolute and final, as it can be changed by adding a codicil, which carries the same legal weight as the main document.
