What is a Will?
A Will or Testament is a legal declaration by which a person, “the testator”, names one or more persons to manage his/her estate and provides for the transfer of his property at death.
In the strictest sense, a “Will” has historically been limited to real property while “Testament” applies only to dispositions of personal property (thus giving rise to the popular title of the document as “Last Will and Testament”.
Why make a Will?
Lets face a fact of life we are all going to get older and none of us will live forever. Yes it’s a fact of life.
It’s clear that we all wish to protect our family and friends whilst we are alive and feel it our duty to the very best we can.
But oddly enough most people choose to do nothing to protect those they love the most after they have passed.
Well by writing your Will you can ensure you can still protect them after you have passed away.
Who can make a Will?
Anyone who is at least 18 years of age and of sound mind can make a Will the only exception to this rule is soldiers who are on active duty and sailors who are at sea at the time they wish to make a Will. In these situations, the lower age limit is 14 years old.
Standard / Off the Shelf Wills
They are such a Bad Idea..!
There really is no such thing as a Standard Will, just as we are all different in so many ways so are our lives. Your Will should reflect your personal wishes and you should not fit yourself and your wishes into a standard printed form.
Do I Need A New Will?
It’s one of the most important documents that you will ever make, but it’s probably the most common one to be put off until a later date. This is one of the many reasons why so many of the adult population do not have a Will, and so die intestate, a situation in which the State decides what happens to your Estate and how it is distributed.
