At Barrister-Direct, we understand that no one really wants to think about their passing. However, when an individual’s affairs are not properly planned, this can lead to unnecessary distress and worry for those that are left behind. If you are over 18 and have full capacity, you are able to and recommended to make a will. Failing to do so may mean that the Intestacy Rules will deprive your loved ones, such as stepchildren or partners of your estate and result in your estate being distributed contrary to your true wishes.
A will ensures that your wishes are placed into a legally binding document that protects those that you leave behind. It allows you adequate time to plan your affairs to protect your funds and utilise relief from things like future care home fees and inheritance tax, again, providing comfort and security for those that you leave behind.
