Preparing a Will is crucial if you want to be in control of what happens with your estate on death. This applies whether your estate is modest or substantial.
Why Make a Will?
- You decide who is responsible for dealing with you estate
- You decide how your money, property and/or possessions are divided
- You can make provision for a partner if you are unmarried or you have an unregistered civil partnership
- You can appoint guardians for your children if they are under 18
- You can protect disabled dependants (often an outright lump sum payment from an estate can affect their entitlement to vital benefits)
- You can plan effectively regarding Inheritance Tax (Inheritance Tax is charged at 40%)
- You can support a charity.
By planning positively, you choose what happens to your estate when you die. If you have not made a Will, you can not make the decisions.
