1. You Decide Who Gets What
A Will is legally binding, which means that any family fights about who gets what will be minimised.
2. If you are not Married you can Protect your Partner
If you are not married and die without a Will, then the law does not recognise your partner as someone that can inherit. Your partner may end up with nothing.
3. You can choose who looks after your minor children
Your Will can give detailed instructions on how your children are to be looked after.
4. Inheritance Tax
