A correctly written Will ensures that your spouse or partner, children, family, friends or your charity are provided for.
A Will is one of the most important documents that a person ever prepares. 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. 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
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.
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. You cannot assume any spouse, life partner or children will inherit everything when you die.
