2 Good Reasons to Create a Last Will & Testament


If you have yet to put pen to paper and decide what happens to all your worldly assets, now is the time to set things straight. If nothing else, the pandemic has shown us how fragile life is and this means preparing for the worst-case scenario, our departure from the earthly plane. Here a few good reasons why you should write a will and have it witnessed.

  1. Reduce the burden on your family – The last thing you want is for your estate to be quibbled over by family members and with an affordable will-writing service in Plymouth, you don’t even have to leave your home. Simply search with Google and you will find a leading will-writing service and everything can be completed via the Internet, bringing you instant peace of mind.
  2. Don’t trust ancient UK laws – The laws in the UK regarding when a person dies without leaving a will are more than a century old and you can never be sure that the government will divide up your assets as you would like. The only way to ensure this is to actually write down what you wish to do with your assets and have the document witnessed and made legally binding. Of course, you can change your will at any time and the online will-writing service is cheap and easy to complete, with expert legal advice.

Once you talk to a will-writing specialist, they can help you draft the document, plus they can arrange for the will to be witnessed and notarised.
