Why is it important to leave a Will?

Without an up-to-date Will, if you pass away, you are classed as intestate, and your estate may not automatically go to your loved ones. An up-to-date Will protects your loved ones and gives the opportunity to benefit charitable causes which you care for.

We recommended that you consult a solicitor, this ensures your Will is legally correct. If you already have a Will and wish to make changes you can contact a solicitor to make a codicil (an amendment) to an existing Will.
