Wills Made Simple
At Vida, we keep Wills simple
Why do I need a Will?
When anyone dies, it's a heart wrenching time that needs stability and simplicity. A Will is an important document in this process. It helps to ensure that your loved ones receive the benefits that you want them to have. Your estate will be made up from various areas; these include, things such as money, investments, property and possessions.
If you have children under 18, you can name a legal guardian within your Will.
What happens without a Will?
If you die without a Will, the UK government will decide where your assets are to be passed. This is called the rules of intestacy. These rules are old and do not always pass the estate to where you would think. Children, or sometimes even spouses, can miss out on inheritance. This often presents problems where people are not married or not in a civil partnership.
If you have children under 18, social services will make the decision on who looks after them. This could be foster parents.
Gifts and funeral wishes
Within your Will, you can give gifts and money. A gift needs to be clearly defined so that there is no confusion, along with clear financial amounts if the gift is money.
You can also detail your funeral wishes, such as cremation or burial, however a Will may not be read until after a funeral, so it's probably a good idea to share those wishes before death.
