Why make a Will?

A: It is estimated that around 300,000 people die intestate (without a Will) every year. This means that the assets owned by you at your date of death will pass under the intestacy rules and not necessarily in accordance with your wishes. The main benefit of making a Will is that you can control how your assets are divided when you die and ensure that your loved ones are provided for as you see fit. Making a Will also means that dealing with your estate will be a simpler (and possibly cheaper) exercise for your family than would be the case if you die intestate.
