Why Do I Need a Will?
Most people believe that when they die, their assets will automatically pass to their loved ones and that they do not need to make a Will.
Others believe that partners and step children will also inherit from their estate if they do not leave a Will.
Some people also believe their nearest and dearest will ensure everyone is provided for.
Unfortunately, these beliefs are not true and that is why we at Watson Thomas Solicitors are here to make sure your loved ones are provided for in the way you want by making a Will.
A careful drafted Will ensures the needs and circumstances of all the beneficiaries are considered and that they are provided for in the best way possible. For example, a beneficiary with a disability may need to have their inheritance held in Trust.
Wills can also be drafted to protect against the unforeseen, such as a beneficiary’ remarriage or bankruptcy.
Children of previous marriages may also need to be protected, whilst at the same time providing for the new spouse or partner.
Whatever your situation or requirements, Watson Thomas Solicitors are here to ensure your wishes are complied with when you are no longer here.
If you have a Will and it hasn’t been updated for some time, it is advisable to consider if your Will still truly reflects your wishes. If you think you may need to change your Will, then we will be happy to advise and assist with making the changes you require.
