Wills and Probate

Understandably, no-one wants to think about their death.  But preparing a will is one thing that you can do to help your family at a very difficult time.

If a will is in place, things are dealt with differently from a legal perspective than if you don’t have a will.

It’s a good idea to prepare a will if there are significant changes to your life, including the following:-

  • If you get married
  • If you get separated
  • If you get divorced
  • If you have a child
  • If you acquire or dispose of assets, you may feel there is a need to make a new will but your will be applied considering the assets that you own at the time of your death.  So if, for example, you include a house in your will and then sell it before your death, there is no real need to make a new will.  Your will will be read in light of the assets that are in place.

There are a number of factors that you need to consider when you are making a will.  We have prepared a checklist for you to go through which lists the various things to take into account.
