Making a will is the single most important thing you can do.
Make sure your money and possessions go to the people or organisations you care about after you die.
Surprisingly, nearly seven out of ten people still haven’t got around to making one!

Advise you on dealing with the estate of someone who has died.
Reasons to make a will:
Your wishes won’t be followed without one. For example, your partner may not automatically inherit all of your money and possessions. If you are not married your partner is not automatically entitled to your estate and could be left homeless with nothing. This can also cause immediate problems and stresses over funeral and other expenses.
A will enables you to make clear, ahead of time, what should happen to your children and pets after your death.
A will allows you to make gifts – money or possessions - to people and / or organisations close to your heart.
You can often make tax savings by having a will.
To make clear your wishes for your funeral and other arrangements after death.
