When should you make a Will?

Dying without a will could create a raft of problems for those left behind. Many assume that their estate will automatically go to their closest family, but if you die ‘intestate’ (without a will), that may not necessarily be the case. Your heirs may not receive what you wish to pass onto them, or your assets could be reduced through inheritance tax.

A Will is essential if you are:

  • A house owner
  • A married couple
  • An unmarried couple
  • A parent
  • A carer

What if there isn't a Will?

If someone dies without making a will, they are said to have died 'intestate'. If this happens, the law sets out who should deal with the deceased's affairs and who should inherit their estate.

When someone dies without leaving a will, dealing with their estate can be complicated. It can also take a long time, months or even years in some very complex cases.
