When was the last time you updated your Will?
Maybe you don’t have a Will?
Or you don't see the need to have one because you don’t have much or any money to leave.
Well, read on because this blog is for you….
Let’s face it, thinking about your death or someone else’s you love isn’t how you want to spend your time, is it?
In fact, you may go to great lengths to AVOID thinking about it, let alone putting the practical information and documents in place, like a Will.
Or if you are aware it needs to be done, YOU KEEP PUTTING IT OFF, telling yourself you are too busy or “I’ll do it next week” or “when I’m older” or I'm too young.
You’re not even sure what needs to go in a Will...
You may have heard that solicitors charge a lot of money for their time and they couldn’t help you in working out who to leave what to or who to ask to be your Executor.
Maybe you don’t see the POINT of having one, because you don’t have any money, you rent and don’t own a place, you don’t have kids, or a partner even, so what is the point?
The point is that when you DON’T leave a Will, you are basically leaving your bestie, your partner, your parents, your children over 18, your brothers and sisters, your friends, WHOMEVER it might be who is your nearest and dearest, with a whole load of s**t to deal with - that they could have well done without!
This, on top of everything else they are having to deal with at, let’s face it, probably one of the worst times of their life.
And YOU would not want that for them, would you? Never in a million YEARS would you wish to be a burden and cause these people, who are your world, so much extra pain and suffering!
But when you do get clear on what is needed to have your Will in place, you are SUPPORTING your friends, and your family in getting through one of the worst times of their lives a whole lot easier.
You are saving them from the added stresses of having to deal with the additional and time-consuming bureaucracy (and COSTS) of not having a Will.
You are saving your children under 18 of having to go through court proceedings and be put in care whilst it is decided who they get to live with at a traumatic time.
You are saving your bank account from being frozen, putting financial strains on your loved ones when it comes to paying for your funeral and paying bills.
Having a will in place makes life so much easier for others (and gives you peace of mind).
