What happens if I do not make a Will?
Then all that you own when you die will be subject to the ‘Rules of Intestacy’. So, the law will decide who gets what, how much and so this can lead to problems.
The most common problem that we see is when a couple are not married or in a civil partnership. Perhaps you are living together or have financial commitments together that are NOT jointly owned. Well, in this instance your partner is not legally entitled to anything when you die, which could cause significant upset and potential hardship.
Perhaps you have children from a previous relationship and you are living with a new partner, again you really need to consider your plan here as your partner is unlikely to get all that they should receive.
Perhaps there is someone within your family whom you would not wish to benefit from your Estate. Sometimes families are not close and may often fall out. In this case, it is possible that those individuals could be entitled to claim some of your Estate.
