Should I make a Will?

The short answer is: yes.  By making a will you ensure that your property and possessions are dealt with in accordance with your wishes and that your loved ones are provided for on your death.

If you do not make a will the law intervenes and your estate will be distributed in accordance with the Statutory Rules of Intestacy.   The rules are inflexible and it is likely that your estate would be distributed in a way that you would not choose.  For example, if you are in a relationship, but not married or in a civil partnership, your partner will not be entitled to anything under the Statutory Rules of Intestacy.  Even if you are married or in a civil partnership your surviving spouse or civil partner is not guaranteed to benefit from all of your estate.

Despite this only three in ten people in the UK are said to have made a will.  Make sure that you are one of them and contact Kenyon Son & Craddock to take the first step to making your Will.
