Many people believe that it is only important to put a Will in place later in life, but there is a strong case to have one in place throughout your adult life as a safety net. Unfortunately, we can’t plan for accidents but they do happen. Without a Will in place the intestacy rules will apply, determining who is allowed to inherit from you and how much. This can cause great stress for those left behind as there’ll be no indication from you about what you’d actually like to happen. It can also mean loved ones may have to file a legal claim if they disagree with how your estate is being handled.
