What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that sets out how you want your estate (the total value of all that you own) dealt with when you die.

Your Will must be in writing and, for it to be valid and not open to challenge, it must comply with certain formalities.

In addition your Will…

  • Specifies which beneficiaries (people and organisations) you want to benefit from your estate.
  • States who your Executors are – the people who you have appointed to deal with the administration of your estate.
  • Ensures that your Executors have the necessary powers to deal with the administration of your estate.
  • Can set out your wishes for specific items or possessions.
  • Can set out your funeral wishes.
  • Can specify whom you have appointed as Guardians and Trustees of your minor children.
  • Only comes into force on your death.
  • Can prevent unnecessary pain, stress and worry for your loved ones.
  • Protects what is precious to you.

When Should You Make a Will?

Making a Will is not something to put off “until later”.

Last Year, 70% of people who died in the UK did not have a valid Will in place – an incredible figure when you realise that, for an investment of just £135 for one person or £180 for a couple, you can have in place a professionally written, legally binding Will that ensures your final wishes are carried out.
