Having a Will: fundamental.
MANY people put off writing a Will fearing the emotional impact this can have.
However, a Will is fundamental in protecting the interests of loved ones and writing a Will benefits from careful thought, so it is wise not to procrastinate. Although many people wait until health problems prompt them to write a Will that is precisely the time when the general stress they are experiencing could cloud their judgement. This could subsequently give rise to challenges from disinherited relatives meaning a long, drawn out court case and possibly loved ones receiving a depleted inheritance or even no inheritance whilst others benefit from the estate.
Having no Will at all is also problematic. More that 60 percent of Britons do not have a Will according to research by Standard Life with 42 percent of 55-64 year olds and even more alarmingly nearly a quarter of over 65 year olds responding they have yet to put a Will in place.
With best wishes Liz
