Why make a will?
Making a will protects your family from the anxiety of intestacy and ensures that your estate goes to the people that you want it to and removes the risk of depriving your spouse or partner of the family home.
Parents of minor children can appoint the Guardians of their choice. An unmarried person is quite likely to receive nothing if their partner dies intestate, regardless of how long they have lived together or whether they have children.
Ensure that your Pets are looked after by the people of your choice and leave a monetary provision for them. Make sure that your share of the property will go to your children regardless of what may happen in the future with your spouse or partner (i.e. mental health issues, remarriage).
In a will you can make your Funeral wishes known and choose where any charitable donations are to go, and with careful planning, you may avoid your estate paying unnecessary taxes.
There are many arrangements to be made by the executors appointed to carry out the terms of a Will, including an application for a Grant of Probate. You would need to think carefully about those who would be the most suitable to fulfil this role for you.
If you prefer to use a professional executor, then S J Drury & Associates would be happy to fulfil this role for you.
