A will is one of the most important documents a person can make. However, many people have not yet made one.
A Will is a legal document that allows you to make provision for loved ones and sets out what happens to your assets and property when you pass away, giving you peace of mind that your wishes will be respected.
It is like an inexpensive insurance policy that can be updated and amended as the circumstances in your life change – when you get married, start a business, have children or decide to start estate planning. If you do not have a will in place on your death, the laws of intestacy will govern what happens to your property and how they are allocated under these rules may not reflect your wishes. Having your will in place ensures that your wishes are carried out exactly how you want when you pass away. There are a lot of very stringent legal rules and formalities when it comes to making a will and a Will can potentially be challenged. It is very important that you are clear in your instructions and get the correct advice from an expert.
