When a valid Will is made it allows your estate, on your death, to be dealt with effectively in accordance with your wishes.
Making a Will allows you to consider whether you may have an inheritance liability and to put measures in place in order to limit the liability.
Making a Will is especially important if you have children or other family members who depend on you financially or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.
It is prudent, therefore, to have an experienced person to provide good sound advice. Once your Will is in place it not only gives you peace of mind but will ensure a smooth transition of all your assets to your named beneficiaries.
Intestacy rules are strict and if you die intestate, without a valid Will, your estate may not go to the beneficiaries you intended. You may also be liable to inheritance tax.
I have been assisting clients for a number of years, arranging their affairs and protecting their families to ensure that they have valid Wills in place to reflect their wishes when they pass. It is essential to have a valid Will which ensures your wishes are reflected accurately.
