Will writing

Why should I consider will writing?

A will is a legal document which allows you to clarify who will benefit from your property and possessions when you're gone.

This can be a difficult subject for many of us and we often push these thoughts to the back of our minds. However, this is exactly why so many people die without a will in the UK, potentially leaving their family and loved ones financially exposed.

Making a will is important if you have children or other family who depend on you, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.

Information and help is available from the Money Advice Service website. This can help you put the right plans in place, giving you peace of mind that your family and loved ones are provided for when you’re gone.

The Money Advice Service offers you free initial advice and support on writing or updating your will.

Benefits of writing a will

  • You can decide what you want to happen to your property and possessions when you’re gone.
  • You can choose who you want to benefit from your estate and who you wish to administer it when you’re gone.
  • You can make sure that all your children are provided for because without a will, any children from a previous marriage may not get anything at all.
  • If you’re unmarried or not in a civil partnership, you can make sure that your partner will benefit from your property and possessions because without a will, they won’t get anything at all.
  • It gives you peace of mind that your affairs are in order, minimising heartache and worry for your loved ones when you’re gone. Having a will also helps to simplify the administration of your estate, reducing any unnecessary pressure for your loved ones.
