What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that outlines what you would like to happen to your assets and possessions when you pass away.
Why do you need a Will (now)?
You need to get around to it. Sooner rather than later. Wills are not just for the Michael Jacksons of the world. Regardless of the number of assets and personal belongings you have, a Will ensures that these items will be passed on to the beneficiaries that you nominate. Aside from assets such as property and money in the bank, a Will can also look after the interests of your minor children and will outline who will be their legal guardian should you pass away before they are of legal age.
As experts in Wills and Estates, we cannot stress enough how important it is that you see a lawyer to prepare your Will. If you pass away without a valid Will, your estate will be dealt with pursuant to the intestate succession laws, meaning that ultimately, your assets and other personal belongings may not be distributed exactly how you intended. Various complications can also arise from not having a Will in place and can cause unnecessary financial consequences, stress and confusions for your family members during what is already a difficult time.
