Why You Should Have A Will

You can make sure your wishes are carried out after your death and those you want to benefit from your will.

  • Your husband or wife may not automatically inherit your property and possessions
  • A will can protect against potential Nursing Home Care fees
  • Your partner may not receive anything if you are unmarried, as the law treats you both as single
  • Minor children could be taken into care whilst Guardians are appointed
  • There could be lengthy delays for your beneficiaries and disputes

Protecting Your Childrens Inheritance

Forward planning is important to ensure that your assets reach your children, grandchildren and other relatives, rather than ending up in the wrong hands.

When assets are distributed to beneficiaries "absolutely", (ie, they receive cash, property or other assets as a direct lump sum payment) so much can be lost. These assets are then considered to be part of the beneficiary's estate and would be at risk of attack from any future divorce settlements creditors and taxation.

With the strategic use of Trusts, Asset Will Writers can ensure that your children and grandchildren are able to benefit completely from the inheritance you want them to receive and at the same time, protect the family home and other assets from being lost to the costs of Long Term Care.

Without A Will You Die Intestate

Intestacy is the situation that arises when somebody dies without having made a will

Rules of Intestacy will determine the beneficiaries of the estate. A husband, wife or partner, parents, brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews of the intestate person may be entitled to a share of an estate but this will depend on a number of circumstances.

  • A grant of representation must be applied for from the probate registry of the High Court
  • Your estate may not be allocated as you had wished
  • This could lead to higher tax charges for your estate
