Need to get you Will in place? Video appointments now available

The UK is suffering from “wills apathy”, with more than 30 million adults failing to make provisions for when they die. Dying intestate (without a Will) means the government will decide who gets what from your estate. Not having a Will could also result in Inheritance Tax being due before the estate is released. Grieving families may be forced to take out loans in order to release the assets.

But drawing up a Will doesn’t have to be a daunting or expensive process, a single Will costs £125 BBX and a couples Will only £195 BBX.

So what should I consider when making my Will?

Executors – the person(s) who will carry out your wishes and apply for Probate. You must trust them implicitly. A couple will generally choose each other, but consider reserves on 2nd death. Unless you have a complex estate there is no need to use a professional Executor like a solicitor.

Guardians – the person(s) who you trust to bring up your children should the worst happen to both parents. Important to name a Guardian in your Will to make your wishes known. Check with them first though.

Gifts – Often sentimental items that you want specific people to have, like your grandmother’s ring to your niece etc.

Age of Inheritance – legally you can inherit at 18, is this too young? Maybe 21 or 25 would be better.

Family Wipe Out Clause – consider if the immediate family was killed in an airplane crash. Who would you want to have your estate then?

Funeral Requests – Buried, cremated, ashes scattered at sea etc.
