Why You Should Write a Will

Nobody likes thinking about death, but it is an inevitable fact of life - as are the effects on the family and friends we leave behind. It is because of this that it is so important to make sure everything is handled correctly. Without a valid Will in place, the government will decide what happens to your assets, your affairs, maybe even your children. By making a Will you can ensure that you decide what happens to everything you've worked so hard for your whole life.

What is a valid Will?

A Will is nothing more than a legally sound declaration of your wishes concerning the distribution of your assets following your death.

When writing a Will, you must appoint someone (an executor) to administer your estate and dispose of possessions and property. In order to make a legal Will, you must be over the age of 18, of sound mind and you must sign the Will in the presence of two witnesses who also sign the document.
