6 reasons you should have a Will

Reassurance

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

Avoiding disputes

Disputes over wills can cause arguments among family members and you may need to have a professional resolve them.

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.

Saving Inheritance Tax

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

Protecting assets

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

Your funeral

Your will can be a way to let people know whether you would prefer to be buried or cremated, and the type of funeral service you want.
