In the busy world that you live in it is sometimes difficult to find the time to address certain issues that really do make a difference. In the event of incapacity or death one of what I consider to be the 3 Must Haves is the Will.

You know it makes sense to have a Will. In a Will, you can, for example, provide for your family and friends or charities, appoint people of your choice to deal with everything on your death, appoint guardians for your minor children and record your funeral arrangements.

If you do not have a Will the law lays down who should inherit your estate but do you know who that will be? You may think that you do not need to make a Will because you have no relatives or are too young (in other words you think you are invincible). Well, you are never too young to make a Will (it is not just the preserve of the aged) and if you have no relatives do you not have friends or charities that you would wish to leave your estate to?

When you leave your loved ones behind, to grieve and to adjust to life without you, the least you can do is make sure that your affairs are in order and a Will is part of that order.
