Making a Will allows you to express your final wishes clearly, and without one you are leaving it up to the law to decide how your estate (your money, possessions and property) is passed on – and this may not be the way you wanted it. Putting your wishes in black and white is not complicated, nor expensive, and when preparing a will, you are bringing peace of mind for yourself and those you love.
Likewise, having a Power of Attorney in place means you can give authority to someone you trust to act on your behalf if you were suddenly unable to do so yourself, due to illness or serious accident.

- Making a Will allows you to express your final wishes clearly and without one you are leaving it up to the law to decide how your estate (your money, your possessions and your property) is passed on – and this may be not be the way you wanted it.
- Unmarried partners aren’t entitled to anything from your estate unless specifically stated in your Will – no matter how long you’ve been together. Writing a Will ensures your partner will receive their fair share of your estate.
- Families today are often complex, especially when people have been married more than once or perhaps have children from previous relationships – having a Will can protect the right people.
- Having a Will in place can help those who are financially dependent on you, so that you can protect those close to you and ensure that any wishes cannot be misunderstood.
- Without a Will, administering your estate will be lengthy and more costly, causing further stress and expense.
