So that your family and loved ones are provided for and that your property is given to the people that you would intend to get it.
If you don’t it will mean that you die Intestate which means that you die without a Will. That means the Law of Scotland will regulate who should get what and will lead to delay for the surviving members of your family and cause much distress as to what it is you wanted to happen.
Partners who are not married have no automatic right to their deceased partner’s estate. It is essential that a Will is made to take into account unmarried partners and any children.
There may be heirlooms for example jewellery that you wish specific people to have – this can be detailed within your Will.
Our experienced team of Solicitors will guide you through all the matters you will need to take into account so that your Will is best designed to meet you and your family’s needs.
