Wills & Trusts

Making a Will is making your wishes come true.

Talk to Ted, later life planning expert, for free advice on Wills & Trusts.

Your Will tells everyone what should happen to your money, possessions and property after you die. All these things together are called your ‘estate’.

If you don’t leave a Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on which may not meet your wishes.

Peace of mind for all the family.

A will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die.  Without a Will the process can be more time consuming and stressful for them.

According to a YouGov survey, nearly two thirds of people don't have a Will even though this causes financial stress and extremely difficult decisions for loved ones.

Dying without a Will - Intestacy

Anyone dying without a valid Will dies 'Intestate'.  This causes upset and stress for many families who then have to wait for years before they receive their entitled inheritances.

Important Note: Wills should always reflect current circumstances and be updated whenever significant changes occur.  Examples include marriage or divorce, birth of children, moving house, cohabiting, leaving UK and many more.

It is also worth noting that Wills are negated by marriage but not by divorce.

Examples of challenges faced if no Will exists:

  • Rules of Intestacy apply, thereby resulting in a special court making all decisions.
  • Bank accounts, personal and business, can be frozen leading to financial hardship.
  • Property disputes and evictions, especially between non-married couples.
  • The Court of Protection will decide who should be legal Guardians to minors.
  • Extra legal costs may become payable.
  • Unnecessary tax becomes payable because of lack of planning.
  • Long delays of Probate can be anticipated.
