Making your Will

Preparing your Will needn’t be expensive, and can be as simple or complex as your circumstances demand. Wills can be prepared either for an individual or on joint instructions for spouses/partners.

Not leaving a Will causes uncertainty, delay and expense. In addition, those who inherit under the Intestacy Rules may not be as you expect, for example unmarried partners would not normally inherit.

From time to time your Will should be reviewed in light of any changes in the Law, your family/friends and your finances, to make sure it still meets your wishes. For example, Wills are usually revoked, at least in part, by both marriage and divorce.
