Die intestate and your loved ones will be left to untangle your legacy

Die intestate and your loved ones will be left to untangle your legacy

Why is it important to have one?

By writing a will you can be sure your estate – your money and belongings – goes to the people you want it to after you die. A will can also ensure there is adequate financial provision for any dependants, as well as stating who should care for them.

What happens if I die without a will?

The rules of intestacy are complicated and vary depending on circumstance. In England and Wales, if the total estate is worth less than £250,000, including a property, and you are married or in a civil partnership, all the money passes to your spouse. This is the case even if you are separated but still married.
