What happens if I die without a Will?

If you die without making a Will, then the Intestacy Rules would apply (effectively the Government decides how your estate is divided).

  • If you are cohabiting and not married, your lifetime partner could end up with nothing or even be evicted from the home you share.
  • If you have a vulnerable child, the inheritance they receive could be at risk from those who might take advantage of them.
  • If your spouse or partner marries after your death, your children could receive nothing.
  • The granting of probate and general administration of the estate can take months, sometimes years, and can invariably be a great deal more expensive.
  • You will have no control over who will inherit what you own.

With proper advice, your estate can be protected for the people you care about. It just takes about an hour and then it is done, allowing you to get on with your life, safe in the knowledge you have completed your Will.

Why Make a Will?

Making a Will is about ensuring what you have, goes where you want it to, and that you are looking after the people you care most about.

In short, a Will allows you to do things that would not be possible if you were to die intestate (without a Will). A professionally produced Will can specify the people who you would want to be the custodians of your children, who will administer your estate and give directions to your executors as to what is to happen to specific assets. It can also protect your assets from being used to pay for Long Term Care fees and achieve desired tax and estate planning objectives.
