Wills

Over 60% of Britons haven't got a Will

YouGov Survey

Many people don't make a Will because they believe that everything will just pass to their spouse or children or they believe their estate to be too insignificant to warrant a Will.

Through making a Will you have control over what happens, but if you die intestate (without making a valid Will) your estate will be divided by the "intestacy rules". The rules don't just govern who benefits from what but who is able to be your personal representative.

Did you know that if you are in a civil partnership or married and have children your partner won't automatically be passed your assets if you die without a Will?

If you die intestate without a spouse your children will benefit on the statutory trust, where there is no spouse or children then the order of entitlement is as follows:

  • Parents

  • Brothers and Sisters

  • Half Brothers and Sisters

  • Grandparents

  • Uncles and Aunts

  • The Crown

The only way to ensure your wishes are carried out is to make a Will.
