One of the main reasons and the best advantage of making a will is that it allows you to provide for the distribution of your property by means of a clear legal document. A person who dies without a will is said to have died 'intestate'. This means that it is left to the State, under the law of intestacy, to decide on your behalf what is to be done with your estate.

A will can ensure that proper arrangements are made for your dependants and that your property is distributed in the way you wish after you die, subject to certain rights of spouses and children. Furthermore a will allows you to provide for the special needs of family members, for example an invalid child, and it also acts as an opportunity to ensure that the absolute minimum amount of tax is paid on death.


Making a will can be straightforward, but more often than not, it can be more complicated than you realise. For that reason it is advisable to have a Solicitor guide you through the confidential process of making a will.
