The Importance of Making a Will

There are many practical reasons why you should make a Will, such as alleviating stress and preventing serious financial problems.

By making a Will, you may be able to reduce any potential Inheritance Tax liabilities – and make life easier for your loved ones, at what is often a sensitive and distressing time.

But for most people, the main reason for writing a Will is to ensure your Estate is distributed to the people who you want to benefit.

Popular reasons for making a Will:

  • Adequately provide for your partner
  • Appoint people you trust as guardians to look after children under 18
  • Appoint a specified person(s) to carry out the terms of your Will
  • Name the people you want to receive your Estate
  • Leave legacy gifts or money
  • Explain and state your funeral wishes
  • Prevent family disputes arising
  • Minimise potential Inheritance Tax

If you are unmarried or in a Civil Partnership and your partner dies, not having a Will could create serious issues for the one left behind to grieve.

What happens if you do not make a Will?

If you die without making a Will, your money, assets and belongings – known as your Estate – will be divided in accordance with the Intestacy Rules in UK Law.

Unfortunately, this may not be in accordance with your wishes – and it could mean that you pay more Tax than is necessary. In some instances, whole Estates have been passed over to the Crown. Would you really want this to happen after working hard for your whole life?

Making a Will ensures you can provide for your loved ones in a clear and legally binding way, minimising the risk of any disputes arising after your death.
