What is your last Will and Testament?
Simpy put your Last Will and Testament is a legal document of what you want to happen with your property and possessions after your death. Your will can also instruct on what you would like to happen with other people you are responsible for – such as dependants.
If you look at your will as possibly the most powerful document you will ever have written for you – it directs what happens with every asset and every penny that you have in the world! The paper that your will is written on could literally be worth hundreds / thousands / hundreds of thousands / millions of pounds to your loved one(s).
Not leaving a will behind when you pass is called intestacy and this basically appoints the government as executors of your estate. Under Intestacy Laws there are fixed ways of distributing the estate left behind which are not open for negotiation! Having a will also makes inheritance smoother and quicker for your nearest and dearest at a difficult and emotional time.
