So making it clear how you would like your estate to be distributed will save everyone a lot of worry. Deciding who you want to leave your property, savings and possessions to should ensure that everything goes to the people you care about.
• Protecting your assets for future generations. A well drafted will can ensure that assets are kept within the family and are passed on down the generations.
• Reassurance. A will is the only way to make sure your estate goes to the people you intended.
• Avoiding disputes. Badly drafted wills can cause arguments among family members. Leaving a properly prepared will should remove any doubt about who you want to benefit from your estate and avoid additional stress at an already difficult time.
• Your funeral. Your will can include whether you would prefer to be buried or cremated, and the type of funeral service and music you would like.
• Saving on Inheritance Tax. With a carefully planned will, possibly together with trust work,it may be possible to reduce the Inheritance Tax bill payable by your estate after your death
