The importance of planning ahead

The changes in family structures call attention to the importance of planning ahead as the number of disputes over inheritance has significantly risen with a record number reaching the High Court. Many of these disputes arise because no Will has been left or the Will has become invalid due to a change in circumstances, such as marriage or divorce.

No matter the value of your estate, your age or status, it’s crucial to plan for the future to ensure your wishes are heard and your legacy is protected after you have passed away. Recent research reveals that a staggering 61% of UK adults do not have a Will, even though creating a Will and keeping it up-to-date and valid is the only way to guarantee that your estate is distributed as per your wishes.
