What happens if I don't leave a Will?

It is estimated that over half of the adult population do not have a Will.  The Inheritance and Trustees’ Powers Act 2014, which came into effect on 1 October, simplified the rules surrounding the division of the estate where the deceased did not leave a valid Will.

However, they still do not account for unmarried partners, stepchildren, friends or charities you may wish to leave assets to.  Having a valid Will in place is the only way to ensure that your assets are divided in the way you chose and to whom you chose.
