Free Will service Protecting you and your family We all want to make sure our loved ones are taken care of in the future. By writing a Will, you can ensure that your money, property and possessions (your 'estate'), go to the people and causes you care about after you die. If you don't leave a Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on - and this might not be in line with your wishes. Four reasons why you need a Will A Will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die – without a Will, the process can be more time consuming and stressful. If you don’t write a will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law – which isn’t always the way you might want. A Will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind. Writing a Will is especially important if you have children or family who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family. Find out what happens if you don't leave a Will.
