A will makes it clear who should inherit what, and who should carry out your wishes. You can also use it to express wishes for your funeral, which can make things easier for your loved ones.
Leaving personal gifts and messages
Writing a will gives you the option to leave specific personal possessions to friends and family separately to the rest of your estate. Many people choose to leave sentimental items, or items relating to shared hobbies, with messages to remember them by.
If you don’t have a will and die with children under 18 years old, you will not get to decide who takes care of them. You can use a will to appoint guardians who'll take care of them.
Do I need a solicitor?
Using a solicitor to make a will isn’t necessary in most cases. The correct wording and signing of the will are what’s needed to make it legal.
