There’s no escaping the fact that we are all living in very uncertain and scary times right now. Coronavirus is having a huge effect on the entire World, and it is going to affect every one of us in one way or another.
Who Should Have a Will?
Every person over the age of 18 should have a will in place, and your will should be updated every time your circumstances change, such as through marriage, divorce or having children. Making a will is one of the most important things that you can do to protect your family. A will sets out your exact wishes for all of your estate so you can look after the people you care about. Here are just a few reasons why you should have a will:
- A will makes it so much easier for your family (or whoever you choose) to sort everything out when you die.
- If you don’t write a will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law which most likely is not the way you would like to do it.
- A will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind.
- Writing a will is especially important if you have children or other family members who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.
