Why is a Will so important?
A Will is likely to be the only document you ever sign which deals with absolutely everything you own.
It is the document which passes all of your hard earned assets on to your family and other beneficiaries.
The increasing complexity of modern life means that Will planning has never been so important. Second marriages, blended families and large or intricate estates make the process of distributing assets after a loved one passes away extremely complicated if a proper Will was not created.
For those who do make a Will, but choose the quick ‘off the shelf’ or DIY option, problems can arise in the future. Important sections can be missed, resulting in loved ones not receiving gifts as intended, unnecessary tax liabilities, claims by disappointed beneficiaries and even challenges to the very validity of the Will itself.
