1. Reassurance

A will is the only way to make sure your savings and possessions (your estate) go to the people and causes that you care about.

2. Avoiding disputes between relatives

Disputes over wills can cause arguments among family members and may even need a solicitor to resolve them. Leaving a will should remove any doubt about who you want to leave your estate to.

Close relatives and dependants may still be able to make a claim on your estate, but a solicitor can advise you on how likely this is and the best way to prevent it.

3. Looking after your loved ones

Although it’s hard for loved ones to talk about death, talking about your will can save everyone a lot of worry. Deciding who you want to leave your possessions to (your beneficiaries) can help you make sure they go to the people you intended.

4. Protecting your assets for future generations

A will can ensure that assets are kept within the family and are passed on down the generations.

5. Saving on Inheritance Tax

With a carefully-planned will, you can also cut the Inheritance Tax bill on your estate after your death.

For example, Inheritance Tax isn’t normally paid on anything you leave to a spouse or civil partner who has their permanent home in the UK. Inheritance Tax is only payable if your estate is worth more than a certain amount

6. Your funeral

You can specify how and where you would like this to take place.
