Making a Will
 
It has never been more important than it is today to make sure that you have set down in writing how you wish your personal belongings and assets to be distributed upon your death. Making a Will means that you are the one to decide who you wish to benefit from your Estate and what they should receive; whether they are family members, close friends or organisations, such as charities.  In the absence of a Will, it is the authorities who make these very important decisions in accordance with the Government's Intestacy Rules; which may not be what you had wished or would have wanted. This may result in your Estate being shared with estranged family members, while other closer relatives are excluded; or the loss of a bequest to a charity or other organisation, which would otherwise have benefited by your gesture.
