The vast majority of people put off making a will for a variety of reasons. They either believe that the people they wish to inherit it will automatically do so, or they don't think it's relevant to them at this particular time. In life you should always be prepared for unexpected.
The sad reality is that many people put off making a will until it is too late, and this poses all sorts of problems for the people left behind. It could mean that some - or all - of your estate either goes to the wrong person or to the state.
Everyone needs to make a will. In particular, anyone with dependent relatives must do so. If you own a property or have any type of asset which you would wish close ones or a charity to benefit from, you should make a will.
Making a will enables you to plan exactly what will happen to your property (estate) following your demise. This ensures that those you would like to benefit actually do so, in accordance with your wishes, and at the same time avoiding any disputes between relatives.
