Will & estate
A will is one of the most underestimated documents you could possess. Most people know they should have one, but many push it to the bottom of their ‘to do’ lists. If you’ve been procrastinating, get in touch with the team at TaylorMade so we can help you with your Will and estate planning.
What happens to your estate if you die without a valid will in place?
If you die without a will, the government will enforce a strict set of rules to determine who your estate goes to. This could see your home and money going to people you wouldn’t have chosen yourself.
Why is a will important?
Thinking about your own death is certainly not the most pleasant activity, but if you want to be certain your wishes will be met after you die, it’s essential.
By making a Will, you can ensure your loved ones will be protected financially in the event of your death. You’ll be able to decide who inherits your house, who inherits your belongings and who inherits any other wealth you’ve accumulated over the years. In some cases, writing a will before your death can prevent arguments amongst family members by removing any doubt as to who your estate should be left to. Your will can also outline your wishes for your funeral.

Most people instruct a solicitor or professional will-writing service for help writing their will.
If you choose a solicitor, ask them to confirm their fee before you agree to use their services. Some solicitors will charge a fixed fee while others will work on an hourly rate.
In some cases, your solicitor may be able to store your will safely for you, but this may come at an extra charge. It’s important to let your executors know where your will is kept so they can obtain it in the event of your death.
If you decide to use a professional will-writer, make sure they’re a member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters before instructing them to work with you.
