Making a Will can be a daunting prospect. It forces us to contemplate the inevitable and is often, therefore, something we delay doing or indeed avoid doing entirely. To do so, however, would be a mistake. Dying in the absence of a Will (intestate) can give rise to costs and heartache on the part of your family at a very difficult time, all of which may be easily avoided. Making a Will means that you may be sure that your property, money and possessions, may be inherited after your death by the people you would wish to inherit. It represents a clear statement that you have considered the needs of your family and others. In addition, it represents an opportunity to consider matters such as Inheritance Tax in a clear and definitive way.
