WILLS & ESTATES
Do I need a Will?
Whilst a Will is not compulsory, if you care about your assets and who they are distributed to, it is ideal to have one.
If you die without a Will it may cause problems for your family. It may also mean that your wishes are not carried into effect as the Law will determine the person who may act as the Administrator for your Estate and how your assets will be distributed. This ultimately means that you will no longer have any power over how your assets are distributed and who they will benefit.
