The Importance of Having a Valid Will

As Wills & Probate specialist and Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer, Charlotte Nock explains a legally valid #Will ensures that your money and possessions go to the people and causes that matter to you.

Have you got a Will? As Charlotte explains a Will is one of the most important documents you will ever make, yet over 50% of adults in the UK still do not have a Will. We live in a world of increasingly complex family relationships. If you die without leaving a Will your partner, spouse or other close family members do not automatically benefit from your estate. If you have no surviving family your estate will pass to the Crown.

In her video Charlotte explains how best to plan for the future of those you leave behind. She also explains the role of a executor, how to choose an executor for your estate and exactly what a grant of probate is and how long it takes to get this.

Many people are concerned about the costs involved in making a Will and choose to avoid using a professional. But a simple mistake in a DIY Will or one prepared by uninsured and untrained Will writers can often mean paying a much higher price and leave loved ones and assets unprotected.
