Why have a Will?
A Will allows you to have your say after you’re gone. As well making sure your loved ones are looked after, you can also leave bequests and gifts, support charities, make sure the family heirlooms are left in safe hands, record your funeral wishes, and appoint guardians to take care of your children.
Without a Will you lose the power to decide what happens and the law decides how your estate is distributed. People who you may not want to benefit may receive some or all of your assets.
Those left behind may face lengthy delays and considerable costs while they wait for the Court to appoint an administrator to distribute your assets. Things can end up very different to how you might like.
