Wills and Probate
It’s not exactly something we like to think about, but the reality is, our lives have expiry dates – and you never know what’s around the corner.
If you’re over the age of 18, you’ve got the chance to make sure that when your time is up, you help your loved ones make the most of the time they have left.
Remember – the things you own aren’t automatically passed on to your husband, wife or partner. Without a valid Will, your estate will be distributed according to the laws of Intestacy, which are usually not in accordance with what you want.
The expert team at CMS Legal can help you write a properly drafted and signed Will so you can clearly outline who gets what. We can also help with obtaining Grants of Probate to prove the Will is valid in the Supreme Court.
Here’s what’s needed to make a valid Will:
- A list of all your assets and liabilities (house, car, personal possessions, insurance policies, saving, pension plans and debts)
- Full names and addresses of beneficiaries – the people or charities who will benefit from your will)
- Full names and addresses of Executors – the two people you trust, often family members, who will carry out your wishes as stated in your Will.
