Why do you need a Will?

The short answer is that everyone needs to have a Will in place. The reason for this is that if you don't, then when you die the Government's Will Template would automatically apply to you, this is known as "dying intestate". A will can be used to determine which beneficiaries receive your estate. Your estate is made up of everything you own, whether this is property, vehicles, savings and investments, jewellery, artwork or family heirlooms. It also applies to money tied up in insurance policies, trusts, bonds and pensions. In your Will you will identify who will be your Executor(s), these should be chosen carefully as it is a very responsible job implementing a persons Will and dealing with their estate.

 

Wills can also be used to identify who you would like to look after your children if they are under the age of 18 at the time of your death. Although it should be noted that any such nominations for guardians would be vetted by Social Services to assess their suitability at the time.

You can also use a Will to outline your funeral wishes, but it should be noted that these requirements should also be made known to your Executors as it is most likely to be they who will make the necessary arrangements.

Types of Wills

There are basically two types of Will - a Single Will and a Mirror WIll.

A Single Will is designed for a single, unmarried person.

A Mirror Will is one of a pair of Wills commonly used for a married, civil partnership or co-habiting couple who wish to leave everything to each other, ie. one will "mirrors" the other.

Common Misconceptions about Wills

There are a number of common misconceptions about Wills.

If you die without a Will and you have a partner but are not married, then your partner may not necessarily inherit your estate. The Law of Intestacy states that your blood line would inherit, so if you died without children, then your siblings or parents would inherit or if they were unable to do so then the nearest surviving blood relative would inherit instead. This could leave your partner without a home or any financial means, which may not have been your intention.
