Everyone should have a Will; there are various reasons as to why. For a lot of people, it’s the peace of mind you get from knowing you have made it as easy as possible for someone to administer your estate, as you have named who should be responsible for dealing with your estate, directed where your assets should go and maximised inheritance tax relief and exemption. If you die without a Will, the process can be complicated, unclear and stressful for your loved ones. The process of making a Will is usually a lot more straightforward than you might think; our dedicated team at Owen Kenny are here to guide you through the process, explain the legal terminology in plain English and put you at ease every step of the way.

Reasons to make a Will:

  • When you buy a house
  • To appoint guardians for children
  • When your marital status changes
  • To protect your business
  • To make a difficult time less difficult for loved ones
  • To appoint the person(s) responsible for dealing with your estate
  • To confirm funeral wishes
  • To make arrangements for pets J
  • To leave pecuniary or specific legacies for someone (pecuniary = money, specific = personal items)
  • To disinherit someone
  • To decide at what age your children can inherit (statutory age is 18)
  • To decide who receives your estate
  • If you win the lottery!!

And the best reason of all…. it gives you peace of mind that your affairs have been appropriately dealt with (and again, does not tempt fate!)
