Everyone should have a will, if not then you have no say over what happens to your estate when you die causing difficulties to those who care about you most.
It is a common belief that, if you are married or in a civil partnership your spouse or civil partner will automatically inherit everything you own when you die. In fact it's the law that sets out rules to determine how your assets are to be divided should you die without making a will, however the rules are intended to be fair but they may not suit you.
If your spouse or civil partner and children survive you then your assets will be divided among them in fixed proportions that may not suit your family, equally the rules make no provision for a partner if you are not married or in a civil partnership even if you have lived together for years.
It is possible to write your own will but it is a good idea to seek professional advice as your will is important and us here at YEPA can ensure that your will complies with all the legal requirements and ensures that your instructions are clear and carried out after your death.
