No, why not let me guess
I don’t have anything to leave
This is seldom true a mortgaged home with a life policy will probably mean the mortgage is paid off and the property is an asset.
You might have a life policy or receive a payment under your pension scheme if you die.
Also you should make a will even if you have no property if you have children under 18 as you need to appoint a guardian for them saving them the heartbreak of not knowing who they will live with if you die; this is called a Testamentary Guardian .
“I am too busy to make a will”
Some of the most important people in the world are very busy running countries, worldwide business empires etc. they still find time to make a will. No one is too busy to make one, and looking at what your finances are and planning for the future is always worth you investing some time in it.
” I just cannot get into the office”
We can arrange to visit you in your own home; this will normally attract a fee for travelling to see you.
“It’s morbid I don’t like to think about dying”
No one does, but there are only two certain things in life death and taxes. Making a will does not hasten your death
”I don’t plan to die any time soon “
No one of us do, but accidents do happen ,really no one knows when exactly they will die.A sudden death without a will can leave your loved ones in limbo not knowing what will happen after your death is not to be recommended. Experience shows that simply knowing that you are doing just what your loved one wanted is a great comfort. A will can set out wishes for funeral arrangements.
“I don’t want to upset my friends and relatives by talking about my death”
I can guarantee that if you do not make a will they will be much more upset over a much longer period and the effect of the intestacy rules might be terrible for them.
You do not have to talk to anyone except those who you wish to make sure that your will is put into effect i.e. your executors and your testamentary guardians. These are the people who will act in your place as a parent if you die while the children are below 18.
If you have now changed your mind about a will please contact Clive Harvard to discuss your will and to make an appointment
