Drafting a Will
Having a will is really important. It will ensure that when you die your estate is shared in the way that you want. If you are not married, then your partner cannot inherit your estate making it really important you use an experienced Solicitor to draft your will.
If you die without having made a will, you will get no say in what happens to your estate.
If you are own a business, have overseas assets or have a complicated family arrangement, it is highly advised you seek a Solicitor to make sure your will is protected.
Amending a Will
You may wish to make amendments to your will due to changing circumstances. You cannot make amendments to the will simply by editing it after it has been signed and witnessed.
To change your will, you can either draft a new will or make a codicil to the will. A codicil is a supplement to your existing will. It must be signed by the person who made the will, and be a witness in the same way.
There are no limits on how many codicils you can add to your will.
If a person dies without having made a will or if their will is not legally valid, their estate will be shared according to the rule of intestacy.
Under such rules, only married or civil partners and some other close relatives can inherit.
If there are surviving children or grandchildren etc. and the estate is valued at more than £250,000, the partner will inherit:
- £250,000 and half of the remaining estate
- All the personal property and belongings of the person who died
