Why make a Will?

Most of us will have considered making a Will at some stage, yet it is easy to put off making it, often due to the ‘will do later’ attitude. Many people presume their nearest and dearest will inherit what they leave behind, but your intended beneficiaries may not receive as you first thought. Unfortunately, if you die without a Will, your assets will be distributed according to an ancient 1925 law, rather than in accordance with your wishes. This could mean that the people you thought would benefit from your life savings will lose out in the long term, possibly causing them to suffer stress and financial hardship.
