The old saying ’Where there’s a Will there’s a way,’ is so true. Without a Will the rules of Inheritance apply. These are complicated and can leave your family not properly provided for. The time taken to establish who inherits what can leave your family in limbo for an extended period.
A well-drafted Will takes the risk out of what happens to your property and possessions:
- You choose people you trust to carry out your wishes
- You select Guardians for your children who will care for them
- You decide who gets what and who looks after your children’s assets until they’re 18
- You make sure your partner is provided for
Best of all – you will have peace of mind.

Providing for your partner
Partners don’t necessarily inherit. If you’re not married then a partner may not get anything if there’s no Will. If you’re married and have children then your spouse will only get the first £250,000 these days your home is probably worth that – or more.
Looking after your loved ones
If anything should happen to you, who would look after your children? Who would take on the care of your pets? Most of us expect our children to have grown up by the time we pass on, but tragedy can strike. Wouldn’t you feel better to know that your children will be looked after by people of your choice?
Reducing Inheritance Tax
