Professional Will writers at cba Chartered Accountants in Beverley are working to raise awareness of the importance of having a Will and keeping it up-to-date.
Each year thousands of people die in this country and most of them leave their families with all the problems of Intestacy, which means to die without a legally valid Will.
Tracy Hutty, says: “If you have children, own a home or have a business, then having a Will applies to you. It isn’t the daunting prospect many people might imagine, it actually provides a sense of relief to know that loved ones will be taken care of as stated in the Will. The common mistake made is that people believe their possessions will automatically be passed on to family members. This is not always the case, as without a Will, the law decides how the estate is divided.”
“It is just as important to keep a Will up-to-date. If a couple separate and don’t change their Will it could mean that upon death the ‘Ex’ would inherit the estate.”
Having a Will written by a professional ensures that it is stored safely and kept up-to-date when circumstances change. As the saying goes – ‘Where there’s a Will there’s a way’, for further information, please call cba Wills & Probate on 01482 881919.
