Your Will is a very important legal document. In it, you set out how, and to whom, you would like your assets, or “Estate” to be divided after your death.
Even though having a Will is very important, not many people have one. About half of the population die without a Will, which is referred to as dying “intestate”.
Although most people agree that the preparation of a Will is necessary, many simply do not allow themselves the time to do this.
This guide discusses the importance of a having a Will, what it should say, and the requirements to prepare one. Please note that this is a guide only and you should consult a solicitor as to your individual circumstances.
