Everyone needs a Will. Quite simply, it is the document that will:
- Appoint someone you trust (‘executor/trustee’) to look after your estate for the ultimate benefit of your beneficiaries
- Appoint guardians for your children
- Avoid the Rules of Intestacy (for more information please visit www.gov.uk)
- Give your executors the authority to deal with your:
- Bank accounts
- Probate (for more information please visit www.gov.uk)
So a basic Will is a remedy to these issues – but some Wills can be more complex, as they need to offer more wide-ranging solutions.
