Remarkably, even in this day and age, most adults do not have a Will. There are many reasons why they don’t but the main reason being that they over think it and end up having nothing in place in the interim.
They worry about who are going to be the beneficiaries and what to leave to whom, they worry about who to list as guardians of their children or who they can list as trustees or executors. Some even worry that by putting pen to paper somehow makes them more susceptible to death than before whereas in truth rather than making the writer more susceptible, what it does do is make them more prepared for death and takes away the endless worry about having a Will.
The irony is, that in the absence of a valid Will their decisions or intentions can be completely disregarded or misconstrued. Without a valid Will in place then how can you be sure of the following questions:
We all want to make sure that our children are looked after by the people we choose to do so and to make sure a spouse or loved one is looked after as well.
Sometimes we also consider what the future may hold for everyone and want to ensure that the estate is ring fenced sufficiently so that life interests are created for loved ones whilst the estate is protected and maintained for one’s children.
It is also important to protect the family home from hostile creditors or tax liabilities that could ensue. Without the correct guidance and forethought much of the estate you leave could be lost forever instead of going where it was intended to.
Taking professional advice on the drafting of your Will and keeping it updated or supplemented by letters of intention as your circumstances change is the only way to be sure that your wishes will be identified and your family fully protected.
