Frequently individuals die without making a Will, in fact this is quite common with about 2 in 3 people not having made a Will. When this occurs, the estate is then distributed in compliance with a rigid set of rules known as the intestacy rules. Blood relatives are listed in order of priority and spouses receive a set sum. This can have often have disastrous consequences.

Making a Will – The Advantages:
It is possible to purchase a Will from a stationers and complete it yourself however unless this is checked by a solicitor you will not know whether the Will is sufficiently clear enough to ensure that your wishes are valid. The will might also contains a mistake or mistakes which could result in making the Will invalid.
