You may think it is not important for you to make a Will for different reasons, you
have limited assets or you have a busy life, you’re in good health.
Everybody should have a Will, husbands, wives, people living together, single people,
young and old people, we can have little indication when we will die and have all

- If you die without a will, there are rules as to how your assets are divided. This
is not necessarily how you would have wished.
- Unmarried partners who do not have a registered civil partnership cannot inherit
from each other unless there is a Will.
When a person dies, someone has to deal with their affairs; this is called “administering
Dealing with the affairs of someone who has died can take a long time. It is not
unusual for it to take up to a year. Many organisations may be involved in the process.
The estates cannot be dealt with until all claims to it have been received; individuals
have six months from the date when Probate was granted to make claims against the
estate. Personal representatives are responsible for making sure that the estate
is administered correctly, if there is a Will, the personal representative must ensure
the wishes are followed. If there is no will the rules of intestacy must be followed.
