A Will is a very important legal document and everybody should have one. It is often assumed that if you die everything you own will pass to your partner but this may not be the case. You need a Will if you want to ensure your estate will pass on when you die in exactly the way you want it to. If you run a business having a Will is an essential part of your business continuation strategy.
In order for a Will to be valid all the correct legal formalities must be observed when making it and there are many traps for the unwary. There is no substitute for having a Will professionally drawn up by a solicitor and it may not cost as much as you think.
