‘70% of people die without a valid Will being found’

- This may be because they just never got round to writing one, or because they wrote one but their Executors did not know where it was stored, or could not find it or get access to it.

- If you die without a Will don’t worry, the Government has one for you!! - your estate is dealt with under the Government appointed ‘Rules of Intestacy’ which lay down who will inherit from your estate and how much.

- This means that, contrary to popular opinion, your spouse will NOT necessarily inherit everything, which can actually result in them having to sell the family home to provide for their children’s rights to inherit.

- Worse still, your long term unmarried partner may not be entitled to inherit anything from your estate and, depending on how you own your assets, could be forced out of the home they have shared with you for many years, by members of your family - parents, siblings, step-siblings, grandparents and even aunts and uncles - who may all have a right under the Intestacy Rules to your assets.

- And if you have no family, the Government will take all your estate!
