Wills! Everybody knows that they should have one, but very few write them.
This could be a very good time to consider this important instruction, for the benefit of your family, other loved ones and those that you wish to benefit from your estate.
What is lesser-known, is that a solicitor is not a legal requirement in having a will drawn up and put into force.
In its simplest form, a will is a summary of your estate, a list of beneficiaries to this, a named executor (at least one), and the document should be signed by you (the testator) and witnessed by an independent person, and dated.
Make sure that your executor knows where the document is, in the event of your shuffling off this mortal coil.
