If you are 18 years old or over, you should have a Will.
A Will ensures that in the event of your death, your Estate will pass in accordance with your wishes, not in accordance with an Act of Parliament.
The decisions you make when creating a Will can have long lasting effects.
We can answer all your questions, including:
- What is the role of the Executor and Trustee?
- What assets do I own that will pass under my Will?
- Can I be sure that my beneficiaries will receive their entitlements?
- Can my affairs be re-arranged to benefit my family?
- Can my Will be challenged?
