Experience shows tomorrow could be too late – make a Will now so that your wishes are respected.
The fact is every adult should make a will. If you care about what happens to your property when you die then you should make a Will. You may have assumed your estate will pass to certain people but if you have not made a Will then the law will dictate who will inherit your estate.
It is particularly important to make a Will if you are not married or are not in a registered civil partnership as the law does not automatically recognise cohabitants. Similarly, if you have children or dependents, it is important that provisions are made for their care. Special provisions can be made in a Will to protect the interests of disabled children or family members who have financial or relationship difficulties.
At Killingworth & Parrott, solicitors we take the time to discuss all your circumstances and your wishes with you so that we can provide practical advice and draft a Will that meets your specific requirements.
