Writing your Will gives you peace of mind that comes from knowing you have taken care of everyone, so far as you are able.
You cannot assume any spouse, life partner or children will inherit everything when you die. The five key elements covered in our Standard Scottish Wills are as follows:
• The appointment of trusted executors for your estate
• Who are the beneficiaries of your estate
• Appoint legal guardians for children under 16
• Specific legacies – allows you to give certain articles to specific persons
• Funeral Requests – avoiding distressing family arguments
To die without a Will is to die Intestate. That means the government will write your will for you and it will almost certainly not resemble the choices you would have made as the rules are set and apply to everyone.
A Will is one of the most important documents that a person ever prepares. A correctly drafted Will ensures that your spouse or partner, children, family, friends or your charity are provided for. We advise that professional executors are named in your will to ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your estate is properly administered.
For a document to be effective as a Will, some legal formalities must be observed. Also, there are pitfalls that can cause difficulty when a Will comes to be proved by the Court. It is therefore important that the preparation and signing of the will are professionally supervised.
In the event a surviving partner was to remarry, the Protective Property Will ensures your share of the home will be safeguarded for your children’s inheritance which in turn can help protect your share of the property from care costs.
