Wills Matter

We were delighted to host a great lunchtime seminar all about Wills. The talk had even the hardiest of listener contemplating how soon they would get cracking with making their will. It became quickly evident in our discussions that there would be many complications, family disputes and emotional roller-coaster rides following your passing for your family should you not have taken time to make a Will.
The talk went into details about a variety of areas including:

Why make a Will?

 

  • If you die without a Will the law determines who will inherit your estate
  • ‘Homemade’ Wills could be misinterpreted and may be invalid
  • The people who you would like to inherit your estate may receive nothing
  • Wills can be easily changed to reflect life changes e.g. marriage, divorce, birth of
    grandchildren
  • Gives you the option to leave property to a charity or religious organisation if desired
