Beneficiaries

Your Beneficiaries are everyone including but not limited to, your spouse/partner/civil partner/common-law partner, including children, adopted children, and stepchildren that you would like to leave your possessions to. Beneficiaries can also include friends and charities.

Why you should make a will

  • You can put off making a will until it is too late, and this causes all sorts of problems for the people left behind.
  • Not making a will could mean that some or all of your inheritance either goes to the wrong person or to the state.

Making your will enables you to plan exactly what will happen to your property following your demise. This ensures that those who you would like to benefit actually do so in accordance with your wishes, and at the same time avoid any possible disputes between relatives.

Most importantly, it is the peace of mind making a Will provides.

 If You Do Not Have a will.

  • You cannot be sure that those who would wish to benefit will actually do so.
  • Your spouse or civil partner will not automatically inherit all of your estate.
  • Common-law partners may not receive anything.
  • Minor children could be taken into care while guardians are appointed.
  • There could be lengthy delays for your beneficiaries in disputes.
  • You cannot prevent certain family members from benefiting.
  • You will not be able to leave something to friends, colleagues, or charities which fall outside of the rule of intestacy
