A badly drafted or out-of-date Will can do more damage than no Will at all!
A Will is a vitally important thing to write. But an incorrect, badly drafted or obsolete Will can be a huge headache.
A Will is an expression of your wishes regarding the management and distribution of your estate after you die. It’s also a legal declaration in which you appoint one or more adults to manage your estate and transfer your property after your death.
Die ‘intestate’ (without a Will) and your property, personal possessions and other assets will be distributed according to intestacy law, rather than your personal wishes. Many believe that when they die, their spouse or partner will receive all their wealth and goods. Actually, this is not the case. In fact, without a Will, your assets are distributed according to a strict legal pecking order.
