WHY MAKE A WILL?

Making a Will greatly assists others when you pass away and ensures that your wishes are carried out. It should provide you with peace of mind. With a little planning, you can ensure that your wealth, and the gifts you want to make, reach the right people at the right time.

Without a Will:

  • Your assets will pass in accordance to the law, which does not necessarily pass your assets to those whom you consider closest to you.
  • You will not pass any assets to people who are not directly related to you, including step-children, common law spouse and your favourite charities.
  • If you are separated but not divorced, your estranged spouse could still inherit and be responsible for administering your estate.
  • You will have no say in who will look after your children if they are under 18 when you die.
  • You will have no control over the age at which your beneficiaries will inherit.
  • There could be increased cost and delay in administering your estate
