What is a will?
Your Will is your own unique expression of wishes for your friends and family. A Will covers many vital issues – gifts of money and property as well as 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.
Why do I need a will?
Without a Will, the law known as the intestacy rules will decide who receives your property when you die and this could mean those you love are excluded, especially if you are not married.
