When should I make a Will? 

A Will is an essential document that sets out how you want your assets to be dealt with when you die. The reality is that you can make a Will at any time you want, although there are certain times in your life when making a Will may be more necessary than others. We will explain in more detail when you should make a Will. 

At what age should you do a Will? 

Anyone can make a legally valid Will from the age of 18 years. However, some actions or life-changing milestones may necessitate writing a Will.




Is it necessary to make a Will?

Making a Will is not mandatory, but it is a good idea. If you do not have a Will, you die ‘intestate’, and the intestacy rules are used to share your estate. Your estate might go to spouses or family members you do not want to benefit from your Will.  

Even after drafting a Will, it can be contested on the grounds of validity, therefore it is a good idea to have a Will professionally written.
