Why do I need a Will?

Everyone over 18 with a bank account, property or other assets needs a Will.

Without a Will you rely on the legal rules of intestacy to share your estate – often this is not what you would have wished.

It’s so important to make a Will if you are not married or in a registered civil partnership. Sadly, the law does not recognise partners who live together as having the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners. Even if you have lived together for many years, your partner may be left with nothing if you have not made a Will.

A Will is also vital if you have children or dependants who may not be able to care for themselves. Without a Will there could be uncertainty about who will look after or provide for them if you die.

You should consider specialist legal advice about making a Will if:

      • you want to include a Trust in your Will (perhaps to provide for young children or a disabled person, save tax, or simply protect your assets in some way after you die);
      • your permanent home is not in the UK or you are not a British citizen;
      • you live in the UK but you have overseas property;
      • you own all or part of a business or
      • a friend, lodger or relative could make a claim on your estate when you die because they depend on you financially.

Some changes to your circumstances such as marriage, civil partnership, separation, or divorce can make all or part of your existing Will invalid or inadequate. This means that you must review your Will regularly, to reflect any major life changes.

A Will covers many vital issues – gifts of money and property to family, friends and your favourite charities as well as naming who you wish to be guardians of your children. With good estate planning and a well drafted Will you can minimise the amount of inheritance tax your family will have to pay.
