Wills and Probate...

Why make a will?

  1. to name your Beneficiaries. (In other words, those to whom you want to pass your assets and belongings);
  2. to name your Executors. (In other words, those to whom you want to give the responsibility of managing your affairs and distributing your assets);
  3. to arrange a specific gift or cash lump sum that you would like to give to a Beneficiary or group of Beneficiaries;
  4. to arrange how you would like your residuary estate to be distributed. (In other words, what happens to the remainder of your estate after your specific gifts or cash lump sums have been dealt with).
  5. to arrange how you would like your residuary estate to be distributed in unusual circumstances, for example, in the event that people who you expect to survive, but actually predecease you.
  6. to make the legal process of dealing with your Estate more straight forward. This often means that the legal costs (if any) of distributing your Estate are kept to a minimum for your loved ones. In many cases, it is more cost effective to make a will than not to make a will because of the savings made in the administration of your post-death affairs where there is a valid will.

    These are just some of the main reasons why we recommend that everyone should have a will.
