An unsettling number of people don’t have a Will - despite this being the most important and far reaching document that anyone will draw up and sign during their lifetime.
Most people will have assets of some kind to leave behind - creating their ‘Estate’. Every individual’s wishes regarding what will happen to those assets beyond their lifetime requires a Will.
If you already have a Will, congratulations on your caring foresight. Review and updating your Will regularly is important. With the passing of even a short time, circumstances can change which will impact on your bequest wishes and decisions.
If you don’t have a Will, please consider the importance of having your wishes captured and making a will at your earliest opportunity.
Primarily, your Will assists in safeguarding the future of your loved ones when you are no longer with them. By recording your wishes regarding your Estate. Your Will also protects other aspects of life important to you, and can include your preferences of a more personal kind.
