In recent times, mostly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Law Society have reported a 30% increase in the amount of new Wills being requested. Whilst this shows more people realise how crucial it is to make a Will approximately half of British adults have not made a Will.
In order to help you carry out your wishes, look after cohabitants and pass on your estate, a Will helps your executors (the people you name in your Will) to carry out your wishes after you die. No one likes to think about it, but death is the one certainty that we all face. Planning ahead can give you the peace of mind that your loved ones can cope financially without you, and at a difficult time it helps remove the stress that monetary worries can bring.
