WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE A WILL?
It is important to have a properly drawn up Will because it allows you to choose who will receive your assets upon your death. It is the only way to ensure that your assets and property are distributed to the people you nominate (known as beneficiaries) rather than in accordance with arbitrary statutory rules.
It is essential that both you and your spouse or partner have a Will. Some people wish to leave their assets to their spouse or partner and then, on the spouse’s or partner’s death, to their children or people whom they have chosen together. To ensure your wishes are carried out, both you and your spouse or partner need to make valid Wills.
