By making a legal Will you can set out how you wish your estate to be dealt with after your death.
Your ‘estate’ (essentially) means the assets and liabilities you leave behind at death.
The benefits of having a valid Will include (but are certainly not limited to):
- being able to choose who you would like to administer your Will (your ‘executor’);
- being able to provide for your family and friends in the manner you desire; and
- creating testamentary trusts that might benefit (for example) minors and those unable to make their own decisions.
In the absence of a valid Will, your estate will likely be distributed according to the laws of intestacy. See, for example, Part IA of the Administration and Probate Act 1958
