When someone dies their "estate" has to be sorted out. A person's estate is considered to be made up of the money, property and any possessions they had at the time of their death. The process of Probate involves collecting any money that is owed, settling any debts due (including outstanding taxes) and dividing the estate amongst the respective beneficiaries.
Over 70% of the UK population do not have an up to date Will showing what they would like to happen in the event of their death. Without a will your assets may not go to where you desire and it could make things a lot more difficult for your family in taking control of them too.
Making a Will creates certainty, reduces worry and gives you the peace of mind of knowing those around you will be looked after once you are gone.
