The Law sets out in the Succession Act what is to happen to our assets if we die without a Will ( the technical term is “intestate”). Those rules may not give the things or value you wish to those you want to benefit.
Why should you be thinking about making a Will?
- How will my Spouse manage after my death?
- Who will look after my children after my death
- What about my Partner if I’m not married?
- How can I be fair to everyone after I die?
- What happens to our house if I die?
- What happens if I owe money when I die?
- Are there taxes to be paid when I die?
- I may be a beneficiary in a Will – what should I do?
- My relative died without a Will – what do I do?
