Why should I make a Will?
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 – and this might not be in line with your wishes.
Reasons why you need a Will;
A Last Will & Testament 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.
If you don’t write a Will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law – which isn’t always the way you might want.
A Will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind.
Writing a Will is especially important if you have children or other family who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.
Your Will tells people two very important things:
Who should have your money, property and possessions when you die.
Who will be in charge of organising your estate and following the instructions you leave in your Will – this person is called your ‘executor’, and you can name more than one person if you want to.
You can also use your Will to tell people about any other wishes you have, like instructions for your burial or cremation. Your executor will do their best to make sure your wishes are followed, as long as they don’t involve breaking the law.
The Mortgage Gurus believe that everybody should have a Will in place.
