A will is a legal document that clearly sets out how you want your assets distributed after you have died. It is one of the most important documents you will ever sign, so it is critical that it is legally valid and up-to-date. This will make sure your assets and sentimental possessions are protected and distributed according to your wishes.

What happens if you don’t have a Will
If you die without a Will, then your property will be distributed according to the law, which might be very different to the way you would like it distributed. The allocation of your assets by the state may take a long time and can be quite stressful and upsetting for family and friends.
If you are separated or divorced, or have children from a previous relationship then some family members might be prioritised over others and your possessions may not end up in the care of the person to whom they would matter most.
If you are in or come from a blended family, then please come and talk to us about the implications this may have on your Will and those of your family.
Your Will should be regularly reviewed
Our lives are continually changing and so it's really important that you regularly review your Will. We recommend that you get your Will reviewed every five years, or following significant events in your life, such as marriage, separation, divorce, the birth of a child, or purchase of a house or other property.
