When we are young and healthy, making a will is the last thing on our minds. However, a well-drafted will is a very important legal document which allows you to do many things, including providing for your loved ones in the event that something happens to you. A will ensures that your wishes are carried out in relation to the distribution of your estate.
Without a will you are considered “intestate” and your estate will be distributed according to the law and the rules of intestacy, which may not accord with your wishes and may cause your loved ones distress at a difficult time.
It is never too late to make a will. Anyone can make a will, provided they are over 18 years of age and mentally capable of understanding what they are doing and the consequences of their actions. A will is the best way to ensure that after your death, your money, property and possessions are distributed according to your wishes.
