Have you drawn up a Will yet?
Did you know that more than 60% of adults in the UK have not drawn up a will?
It isn’t the most preferred topic to discuss amongst family and friends, and is not always at the forefront of most people’s minds.
This can lead to tricky issues for relatives and other people who may be entitled to receive monies. A will can make it easier for your nearest and dearest if you do suddenly die, however, many adults never get around to doing it.
Nowadays, it is very easy to draw up a will either via a solicitor or you can even do it yourself with a kit such as those sold in WH Smith, which have been purchased by over a million people so far. Making a will doesn’t have to be expensive, but it does need to get done. Some unpleasant chats are the most important ones.
