The importance of writing a will

A Will is a legal document which documents your wishes, ensuring that your estate is distributed as you would have liked, following your death.

Within a Will you can state who you want to administer your estate and who you would like your assets to be inherited by. You can also appoint guardians for your children, set out your funeral wishes and provide for any specific gifts of items.

A Will can also be structured to protect assets against care home fees, to minimise inheritance tax and to protect vulnerable beneficiaries.

What should you include in your Will?

Within a Will you can state who you want to administer your estate and who you would like your assets to be inherited by. You can also appoint guardians for your children, set out your funeral wishes and provide for any specific gifts of items.

Key information regularly included in a will could be:

  • Who should administer your estate
  • Who should inherit from your estate
  • Specific gifts for set individuals
  • Any donations to charities or other companies
  • Your funeral wishes

Your Will should reflect your current personal and financial situation. We advise that it should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it remains up to date with both your circumstances and any changes in the law.
