Writing a will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. So here are our top five reasons for you to make a will and enjoy some peace of mind.
Make sure your wishes are followed
A will can spell out exactly how you would like things handled after you have passed on.
Protect the rights of your family
A will legally protect your spouse, children and especially your partner if you aren’t married or in a civil partnership.
To make a difficult time less difficult
A will makes it much easier for your family and friends to take care of things during the hard time of losing someone. Without a will, the process can be stressful and difficult.
Help to minimise inheritance tax
Another reason to have a will is it can help reduce the amount of inheritance tax that needs to be paid on your estate.
Make gifts and donations to causes you love most
Wills don’t have to be just for family and loved ones, a will allows your legacy to live on and reflect your personal values and interests. Including a charity in your will is a great way to give back and make sure your assets are used for a good cause.
