While thinking, talking and planning for death may feel uncomfortable, writing a valid will is the only way you can be sure that your wishes are carried out and your loved ones provided for after your death.

Regardless of how much or how little money you feel you have, it is important to make a will because if you die without one, there are certain rules which dictate how your money, property or possessions should be allocated, which may not be as you wished.

Wills are legal documents, and errors can cause problems, so it’s preferable to have a legally-qualified will writer or solicitor to draft it for you.

To make changes to your existing will, this could be done through something called a codicil – seek advice from a solicitor.

If it is five years or more since you last wrote your will, it is probably a good idea to review it anyway. Legal and tax changes, as well as changes in your personal circumstances, could mean that your will no longer provides what you want.
