Making a Will

What Is A Will

A will is a legal document which allows you to direct how your estate should be dealt with after your death. It can deal with who will manage your finances, who is to look after any children and who you would like to benefit from your estate.

The Law Society has advised that you should also record any digital accounts in writing and store these together with your will.

The Social Embers Digital Legacy Toolkit will help you identify the accounts that need to be recorded, and provides you with a pro forma that can be stored with your will.

Death Without A Will

A person who dies without a will, will die intestate and the family will inherit in a certain order. 

If there are no family members then the estate will go to the crown. 

When To Make A Will

You can make a will once you are 18 years old. 

Any major life changes once you are an adult, such as entering into a relationship, having children, finishing a relationship are reasons to make or review a will. Tax and care home fee planning are also good reasons to review your will.
