There are lots of good reasons for making a will:
- You can decide how your assets are shared out – if you don’t make a will, the law says who gets what;
- If you aren’t married or in a civil partnership (whether or not it’s a same sex relationship) your partner will not inherit automatically – with a will you can make sure your partner is provided for;
- You can make sure that no more Inheritance Tax needs be paid than is necessary
Most of all you can ensure that your assets are left to the people who you care for.
