ESSENTIALS: WILL WRITING

An essential part of later life planning, a Will lets you safeguard the important things in your life, for the people you love.

Why is a Will so important?

  • It specifies who inherits what: money, property, possessions, personal mementos or charitable donations
  • A properly drafted Will can protect your loved ones and avoid complications and disputes after you die

What if I don’t make a Will, or keep it updated?

  • Without a Will in place, the rules of intestacy apply – often a lengthy and complex process
  • The people you love may wait longer to receive what you wanted them to get
  • The courts may decide who gets what

Don’t leave it to chance

Whether it’s writing or updating your Will, considering ways to protect your assets, or organising a funeral plan, many of us don’t get around to making arrangements for the future. But we should.

At Golden Charter, we make it simple to manage your affairs and plan ahead.

A Will from us is professionally drafted by our Will writers to ensure it fully meets your needs.

This is not only reassuring, but it can save your family from unnecessary worry by sorting things now.

What else should I know about making a Will?

  • Circumstances change. For example, a relationship status or becoming a grandparent. We suggest reviewing your Will every year
  • The people most commonly appointed as executors on a Will are relatives or friends, solicitors or accountants, or even banks
  • It’s important to choose your executor carefully as this person will have to take on a great deal of responsibility and work. This includes administrative, legal and taxation duties
  • If you die without a Will, the law decides who’ll be responsible for your affairs and who’ll inherit your estate. This could mean those you’d prefer not to inherit, benefit
  • Standard Wills contain your personal details, appointed executors, appointed guardians, funeral details, gifting and residue of your estate
  • Golden Charter is unable to provide any Legal Services products to you if you normally reside outside of England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
