For many people, the task of creating a Will is something they postpone. Whether this is because they don’t like to think about leaving their family and friends, or they simply think that they have plenty of time ahead of them, making a Will is usually not at the top of their list of priorities!
The fact of the matter is, however, that everyone should have a current and legally binding Will.
Whether you are 25 or 75 years old, your Will is one of the most important legal tools you have. It is a legally binding document that stipulates how your assets should be distributed in the event of your death.
At Maclarens Lawyers, we can make the process easy for you. We sit down with you and discuss in detail your assets and how best they should be allocated, taking into consideration your personal family situation and other relevant circumstances. We can advise you in terms of structuring your assets after your death to minimise costs and tax implications for your beneficiaries and to ensure that the potential to make a claim against your estate is also minimised.
Dying without a legal Will not only leaves a great deal of uncertainty, it also leaves an unnecessary burden on your loved ones and a stress that they don’t need.
