You need to make a will to make sure that any money, property, or assets you hold will go to the people or causes that you want them to after your death.
By making a will you can:
- Choose who you want as executors, to administer the distribution of your assets and wind up your affairs after death.
- Prevent financial complications and difficulties for your family.
- Set out the arrangements you would like for your funeral.
- Make sure the people you love, such as an unmarried partner or a dependent, get the provisions you would like them to have.
