Protect Your family with a will​

If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you should make a will, we can help.

Why should you make a will?

For most of us, a property is the most valuable thing we’ll ever own. A will is the only way to make sure your new home will go to the right people if something were to happen to you. If you want to make sure that it stays in the family, or goes to a trusted friend, a will is essential.

With a will, you can:

  • Leave your property to the people you choose.
  • Protect your partner, kids and friends.
  • Make sure your loved ones can stay in the home you share.
  • Avoid a hefty inheritance tax bill.
  • Prevent conflict over split ownership.

What happens if you don’t make a will?

If you die without a will, the law will decide who should inherit your money, your home and your belongings. This can mean that many of the people closest to you won’t inherit anything: your wishes won’t be taken into account.

Without a will:

  • Your partner, if you’re not married, can’t inherit your home.
  • Your family may have to sell the home, to raise money.
  • Inheritance tax can be higher than necessary.
  • Your spouse could inherit everything and remarry, leaving your children without an inheritance.
  • A relative you’re not close to could inherit instead of the people you love.
  • The home can be split between people with different plans for it, creating disputes.
