Gifts in will FAQ


What happens if don't have a Will?


It’s really important to have a Will and everyone should have an up-to-date one.

A Will is a way of looking after the people, causes and charities that you care about after you’ve died. It’s the only way to ensure your wishes are carried out. If you die without a Will, you die intestate – this can cause added stress and financial cost to your loved ones.

Many people choose to make or update their Will on the incidence of key life events, such as:

  1. Buying a house
  2. Having a child
  3. Getting married or divorced.

 

If you don’t have an up-to-date Will, the best time to make one is now. It will give you the peace of mind that you’ve provided for your loved ones, and the causes you believe in are honoured too
