Why do you need a Will?
Your will is the only way in which you can be confident that your affairs will be settled according to your wishes. It can be a way of expressing your love and concern for your family, close friends or organisations with whom you have a strong affinity or commitment and it can limit conflict and stress between your beneficiaries at a difficult time.
So whether you have few possessions or many possessions, for peace of mind, you should have a will. Your will is only effective if it has been properly prepared and executed. It is strongly recommended that you consult a qualified legal advisor when making a Will.
