“Putting your house in order, if you can do it, is one of the most comforting activities, and the benefits of it are incalculable.” Leonard Cohen.
Everybody should have a will. It sets out your wishes and decisions around the guardianship and care of loved ones in your absence, the distribution of your assets and precious personal items that mean a lot to you. A will also helps to reduce inheritance tax & the impact residential care fees might have on your estate and ensures any debts are paid. It gives you peace of mind and provides clarity and certainty for those you love about your intentions. Once all other personal decisions have been made, consider leaving a legacy gift to a charity or cause you care about in your will. Large or small, your gift will enable them to continue their great work in the future. Make that appointment to see a solicitor about your will. It is a lot more affordable and straightforward process than you may think.
