Why Make a Will?

It's easy to put off making a will. However, if you die without one your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes. If you are not married then your parents or siblings could inherit rather than your cohabitee. If you have children from a previous relationship you should determine how much of your estate they should receive. You should plan ahead to avoid paying more Inheritance Tax than is necessary. DIY wills can lead to many problems. We have successfully challenged a number of these on behalf of relatives who were not included. If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness, or you are in the early stages of Dementia or Alzheimers you should make a will. If you are separating or divorcing or if you have just had a baby you should consider making a will.

Changing Your Will

Have any of the following events occurred since you made your will? If so, you should consider making a new will:

  1. If you married after the date of your Will it will be automatically revoked (unless made in contemplation of the specific marriage).
  2. If you divorce, have your marriage annulled, or declared void, or if your civil partnership is dissolved after the date of your Will. In most cases any appointment of your former spouse/civil partner as executor or trustee will no longer be appropriate.
  3. If you change your name or anyone mentioned in the Will changes theirs.
  4. If an executor or trustee dies or becomes unable/unwilling or unsuitable to act e.g. If they have Dementia/Alzheimer’s or if they have moved abroad.
  5. If you have specifically bequeathed any item/property which you then sell or which changes in nature.
  6. If your estate increases considerably in value advice may be required with regard to inheritance tax liability and ways to minimize this during your lifetime.
  7. If you wish at any time to revoke or amend any clause in your Will.
  8. If you acquire assets in a foreign country or make or amend a foreign will.
  9. If you have children who have not been provided for in your Will.
  10. If a beneficiary has developed an illness that requires them to be cared for in a care home. This would require specific advice.
