Your Last Will and Testament - a guide to why and when you need one

Wills, Trusts and Tax Planning

Should I make a Will?

Yes, if you want to make clear where you want any property or assets to go after your death.

 

What happens if I don’t make a Will?

If you die without a Will, then your property passes to people that you may not intend under the rules of intestacy.  People you may want to benefit, for example, a life partner that you are not married to won’t have an automatic right to your Estate. 

 

When should I make a Will?

Most adults should have a Will.  People often make or review their Will at key life moments like marriage or remarriage, having children or buying a house.  In any of those situations, it is a good idea to make a Will or review an existing Will if you already have one.
