What is a Will?

Quite simply, a Will is a document that sets out what you want to happen to your assets after you die, i.e. your money, property and worldly goods.

To be valid it must be drawn up in a way that makes your intentions and wishes clear and must be signed and witnessed in accordance with the law.

It is arguably one of the most important documents you will ever draw up.


Why should I make a Will?

There are many reasons for making a Will – to see our Article “10 Good reasons for making a Will” – click here.

The main reasons we hear from clients are :-

  • To ensure our money and property goes to the people of our choice
  • To appoint Guardians for our young children
  • To make specific gifts to friends or charities
  • To avoid an intestacy (dying without a Will)
  • To have peace of mind that there will not be problems when I die

There are also many technical issues that can be addressed in a Will to incorporate Estate planning to address tax issues and later life matters.


When should I make a Will?

  • Anyone who is over 18 years of age and has assets should consider making a Will.

  • If you already have a Will, consider how old it is and whether it might be wise to review it on a regular basis. Your circumstances may have changed since you made it – or legislation may render it out of date.

  • When we draft your Will for you it will be based on your specific needs and wishes, not an off-the-shelf model where you will have to make compromises.
