Why make a Will?


This page offers information on making a Will. For more information please see our Wills Frequently Asked Questions page.

BECAUSE IT SHOWS YOU CARE

Most people believe that they do not need a Will for their nearest or dearest to inherit their money. Whilst there is a system to define who inherits from people who die without a Will (intestate), this often produces the ‘wrong’ result perhaps because you have children by different relationships, or they have a wide age range, or because your wealth is great enough such that only a set part of it goes to your wife/husband with the rest going to all your children (legitimate and illegitimate) or perhaps your children would end up with nothing because it all gets spent in long-term care fees.

Get it wrong and it can cause heartache for your family, not to mention potentially considerable costs, which would be paid from your estate and reduce the money available to be inherited.


BECAUSE IT SHOWS YOUR WISHES

Don’t leave your family to second-guess your wishes after your death. Make a Will because

  • YOU decide who inherits
  • YOU decide who sorts everything out after your death (called Executors) including who looks after the inheritance of any young children (Trustees) and who is their guardian.
  • YOU can arrange to protect the interests of an unmarried partner
  • YOU can make appropriate financial arrangements for your children even if they don’t live with you, and for grandchildren or step-children if you wish
  • YOU can ring-fence assets to prevent everything being spent in long-term care feescontact Frisby & Small solicitors
  • YOU know you’ve done your best and received proper advice about anything that seems confusing
