Why Do You Need a Will?
Dying without leaving a valid Will is known as dying intestate. This basically takes away your control of who inherits your estate, and the government’s guidelines kick in to decide where to distribute any finances, property or other assets you have (England & Wales have different rules to Scotland, so make sure you get the right service for you!).
If this happens, your assets might not go where you’d want them to. The rules of intestacy follow a strict path and don’t take your personal circumstances into account. This could potentially cause a lot of upset for those you leave behind.
60% of UK Adults don’t have a Will
£15bn of inheritance has been left unclaimed
72% of those aged 35-54 haven’t made a Will
19% of people admit they don’t like discussing death
If you leave a valid Will, you can:
- Make it easier for your family to organise your estate
- Help reduce the amount of inheritance tax paid on the estates of your loved ones
- Nominate guardians for any children or pets you leave behind
- Ensure your loved ones are provided for by safeguarding your assets
