What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that tells people what you want to happen to your estate after you pass away.
It’s important to have a Will to make sure your wishes are understood and can be carried out by someone you can trust. Without one, your property and belongings could be left to someone you didn’t intend, or even to the state.
Why do I need a Will?
- To make it clear who you want your property and belongings to be left to.
- Without a Will, the law decides how your property and belongings are shared out.
- It makes it easier for your loved ones to sort things out when you pass away.
