By making a Will you can decide what happens to your property and possessions after your death. Although you do not have to make one by law, having a valid and up to date Will is the best way to ensure that your estate is dealt with exactly as you wish and is administered by those whom you would want to carry out your wishes. If you die without a Will, your assets will be distributed according to the law rather than in accordance with your wishes.
It is particularly important to make or update your Will if you are not married or are not in a registered civil partnership. This is because the law does not automatically recognise partners who live together as having the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners. Even if you have lived together for many years, if you have not made a Will, your partner may be left with nothing if you die.
It is also advisable to make a Will if you have young children and, in the Will, you can specify who you would want to look after them in the event of your death.
Finally, there may be financial reasons to make a Will, including inheritance tax and benefits issues.
