Why do I need a Will?

If you don’t leave a legally binding Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on, and you'll leave your estate wide open to receiving hefty inheritance tax bills. This means that your family and loved will only receive a fraction of what you would want to leave them.

Frequently Asked Questions about Will Writing

Do I need a solicitor?

No, you do not usually need a solicitor to write your Will. As long as your Will is worded correctly, it is just as valid as a solicitor writing it for you and is normally a lot cheaper too.

What happens if I die without a Will?

How a deceased person’s estate is divided is set out by law. The distribution is determined by how closely individuals are related to you.

I have property in another country; can I include this in my Will?

We would advise you to make a Will in the country where the property is.

When do I need to update my Will?

It is sensible to check the terms of your Will each year in case you decide to change your beneficiaries. You may then decide to amend the terms of your Will.

Certain events will make it essential to update your Will such as; marriage, divorce, birth of a child, change in Inheritance Tax rules or change of guardians.

What makes a Will legally binding?

A Will has to be dated and signed at the end of the Will document in the presence of two independent witnesses (who must not be beneficiaries of the Will), who must also sign the Will in the presence of the person making the Will and in the presence of each other.

Traditionally the witnesses also add their name, address and occupation after their signature which assists in contacting them in case of any doubts being raised about proper execution of the Will.

I already have a Will, what will happen to my previous Will?

Any Wills written previously become invalid automatically.

How many Wills can I make?

As many as you want, but only the latest one will be effective and all the other Wills will be ignored.

Who can witness my Will?

Anyone who is aged over 18 years, not a beneficiary of the Will and of sound mind can witness your Will.
