Wills and Probate
It is easy to put off making a Will, but it is the most important thing to do to protect your family when you die and to ensure that the assets in your estate pass to the people who you want to benefit.
If you die without a Will, certain rules under law decide how your money, property and possessions should be allocated. This may well not be in line with your wishes or what you thought would happen.
A Will gives you a choice about what will happen to your property and other belongings after your death. It can also deal with other matters such as who you would like to deal with all your formalities, i.e. your executors, what kind of funeral you would prefer as well as to whom your possessions will be left.
