Why leave things to chance? If you do not currently have a will or yours is out of date, this is exactly what you are doing. It is especially important to make a will if you have children, own property, have savings, or are a business owner.
Once you have made a will, it is important to review the same regularly to make sure that it reflects your ongoing wishes with regards to property and arrangements for any dependents. You should update your will following any of these events:
- Have children
- Buy a property
The Law Society have produced a handy guide on making a will available here
