What is a will?

Many people become very confused about what a will actually is. Basically, a will is a legal document that allows you to allocate money, property and possessions to individuals, groups or chosen organisations once you have died. A will really is the most important piece of legal documentation that you will sign.

How we can help you write your single will

When it comes to looking after our loved ones when we die, everyone should really have a will. Shockingly, recent research has found that two-thirds of people living in the UK do not have a will.

But this is simply not true. The will writing service that we provide is affordable, friendly and practical. We even come to your home at a time that is suitable for you.

What is a single will?

A single will is often used by people who are not married or in a civil partnership. Often married couples also choose to have their own separate single wills written, as they have completely different wishes once they die. A single will represents the wishes of one individual. Having a single will enables you to do the following:

  • You can choose who you pass your estate on to.
  • You can appoint Guardians for your children who are under the age of 18. The same can be done for your pets.
  • You can name Executers in your will, whose job is to carry out your wishes.
  • Name Beneficiaries in your will. So people as well as named organisations or charities.
  • You can leave gifts or sums of money in your will that are called Legacies.
  • You can set up trust funds in your will so as to take care of your children when they reach the age of 18. Or alternatively, the money can go towards residential costs to help disabled or vulnerable members of your family who are left behind.
  • Many people also state their funeral wishes in their will.

So why should you make a will today ?

Within the UK, the law states that if you die and do not have a valid will, then your wishes for what money, belongings and other considerations that you have, will not be undertaken.

Instead, it will be the government that decides what financial gains and support they receive. By making a will you simply clarify your wishes, that will then enable your family and loved ones to be taken care of financially once you have gone.

As well as giving you peace of mind, it also allows those loved ones to be able to focus on the grieving process rather than on worrying about financial matters.
