Why make or update your Will?
1 Need to make a Will If you pass away without a valid Will, the government will decide who inherits your possessions, property and money (your estate), according to Laws of Intestacy
2 Marriage When you marry or remarry, your previous Will is automatically revoked. As second marriages aren’t uncommon, it is important to make sure that your Will accurately reflects your wishes and protects your loved ones accordingly
3 Divorce When a divorce takes place, it does not automatically revoke a Will. If your wishes have changed (e.g. a change in beneficiary), you must update your Will. Should you fail to do so, your new wishes will not be taken into account
4 New family members Having new additions to your family is an exciting time, but it also means that you should look at reviewing your Will to make sure the wishes it expresses are still valid
5 Death If a loved one dies, you should look at reviewing your Will as the loss of a loved one may have an impact on who benefits from your estate
