Many people put off making a Will because they feel like they don’t have the time. This is understandable as many of us have busy lives. Some people have mobility problems or find it difficult to attend appointments due to other commitments, people may have transport difficulties or have young children, making it tricky to attend day-time appointments. For those who work full time it can be difficult to take time away from work to prepare a Will.
Getting to an appointment can be further complicated if you want to make a Will with your partner or spouse, as this means finding a time when you are both available.
The reasons above mean that Will writing often gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, despite its importance. Having a Will is so important as it is the only way to ensure that your assets are distributed in the way you would like in the event of your death. Therefore, it is vital that you do not put off writing your Will. A Will details how you would like your assets, money and belongings distributed at the time of your death, it will also include details of any Guardians for your children, and the name of your executors (the people you would like to carry out your wishes). If you do not have a valid Will in place at the time of your death, the Rules of Intestacy will apply, which could mean that your assets may not be shared in the way you would like them to be and your family may be left with additional tax bills and costs.
