The importance of making a Will
Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to protect your loved ones and your assets.
Wills not only ensure that your money, property and possessions go to those you wish to benefit, but also allows you to appoint Guardians to look after your young children, leave legacies to charities and make funeral arrangements. Having an up-to-date Will gives your family the security of knowing they have been provided for and gives you peace of mind because you know everything is in order.
We would recommend always having an up-to-date Will but there are particular milestones when we would recommend reviewing or updating your Will such as:
- Buying your first home
- Moving in with someone
- Getting married
- Having children
- Starting or selling your own business
- Changing jobs
- Separation or divorce
- Illness in the family
- Inheriting from a family member or a friend
Your wishes may also change, along with the value of assets you possess throughout your life, so having an up-to-date Will is essential. If you have an existing Will this should also be kept under review and, where necessary, be updated.
We work with fully qualified solicitors in Glasgow and would be happy to set up a meeting for you to discuss your Will options.
