Most people are aware they need a Will, and that it’s best to get some professional advice when doing so (rather than a scribble on a piece of paper).
Whether you are single, married, co-habiting, have children or not; a Will is essential. A Will serves to distribute your property (estate), name an executor, name legal guardians for children and more.
Having a Will also means that you (rather than the Law) decide who gets your property when you die.
There are different “types” of Wills, and depending on your circumstances, this will determine which is best for you and help avoid any unintended consequences for your family and your estate.
