Wills

Why should you make a will?

You might think that when you die, everything will automatically pass to your husband or wife or partner.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. This is why it is so important that everyone over the age of 18 years make a valid Will.

With a properly drafted and signed Will, your wishes will be clearly stated and this will bring certainty to your loved ones.

What happens if you do not have a valid Will?

If you don’t have a valid Will, your estate will be distributed according to the laws of Intestacy, which are usually not in accordance with your wishes.

What information is needed to make a valid Will?

  • List of all your assets and liabilities (house, car, personal possessions, insurance policies, saving, pension plans, debts)
  • Full names and addresses of Beneficiaries – the people who will benefit from your Will
  • Full names and address of any Charity organisation – if you would like any Charity organisation to be your Beneficiary
  • Full names and addresses of Executors* (preferably two people) – the people whom you trust, often family members who will carry out your wishes as stated in your Will.

*Please obtain the Executors’ consent prior to the preparation of a Will.
