A Will is a legally-binding document which sets out what you would like to happen with your assets and possessions. By writing a Will you can clearly set out who you would like to get what.
Dying without a will - dying intestate - can mean that it takes longer to deal with your estate and it might also mean that the people who inherit what you leave behind may not be the ones you would have chosen.
You can write your own Will but using a solicitor will ensure that the correct legal procedures are followed and that your wishes are clear. A Will can also include details of any bequests you want to make to charity and your wishes regarding your funeral.
