Whilst it is difficult to contemplate what may happen in later life and beyond, making provision for these eventualities now is the only way to safeguard the interests of your family and ensure your wishes are known and acted upon. A well drafted will can allow you to provide for your family in ways the default position for those without a will (the “Intestacy Rules”) do not.
For example, trusts can be used to protect assets from care fees, second marriages, second families and for Inheritance Tax Planning. We believe that making a will is also a good opportunity to think about other plans, for example, you might want to let your family know what kind of a funeral you would like, or make provision for pets.
