Why make a will?
What are the functions of a will?
Clearly identifying a trusted person to execute your last wishes
Allocating your estate to the parties you wish
Providing information on the responsibility of under 18s in the deceased’s care
Mitigating inheritance tax as the law can create difficulty for surviving family members
Have an extended family?
When in the case of extended families, there may be disputes over various aspects of the deceased’s will. An extended family can be constituted as any of the following and more: Unmarried partners, second marriages, stepchildren or children in your care, grandparents and any other relatives not in the ‘nuclear family’.
Unfortunately, for those who have not created a will, many cases have meant that extended families have been left with little or nothing. This has often created battles to get what they believe is rightfully theirs, although there is no guarantee they will receive anything.
