No More Excuses, You Need a Will: Part Two
Nine Important Reasons Why You Need a Will
#7 Think About the Cost of Not Having a Will
It is far, far cheaper to have a Will prepared, compared with the cost of administering an estate where a person has died intestate (not leaving a Will). If you believe you are saving money by not having a Will, you are wrong, your family will have to pay for it in the end.
#8 Peace of Mind for Loved Ones
Your family and loved ones will be distressed enough on your death without adding to their pain and uncertainty by not having a Will. If you love your family you will do right by them and make a Will.
#9 Do You Want to Include Charities?
It is becoming more common for people to want to leave something to their favourite charity in their Will. If you do not nominate a charity in your Will, they will not receive anything.
Avoid the ‘Brady Bunch’ Syndrome
In this day and age there are many blended families which can complicate matters. Especially where these is no Will. Children from different marriages / relationships, ex-partners, current partners, ex-partners from whom you never divorced and step children can all contribute to a maze of different and competing interests. By having a Will, your wishes will clearly be documented.
Make sure you regularly check your Will to ensure it is inline with your current family structure and relationships.
