Inevitably life tends to have a way of getting away with us. We leave school as young adults, searching for incomes which will allow us the independence that we so covet. Earning money means we have the power to make the choices about our own lives that feel so important to us at the time.
Whether our goals are to grow our careers, or to start a family, independence generally decreases as we become more financially viable. What begins as an endeavour to be the best person that we can be, results in the accrual of material things and people. The car you save for to empower freedom of choice in your life becomes an asset. The type of social interactions which you choose, leads to you meet like minded individuals and perhaps eventually results in a joining of kindred spirits in matrimony or the like. Families grow, houses grow, need for a more stable income grows. All of these things that you need to build to sustain your life, become your assets. You have a choice over them in life. So too, do you have a choice over them in death.
Life unwittingly takes hold of us and often times, the administration of your life is left at the bottom of the list of things to do. Stats show that 70% of adults living in the UK passed away last year without a will. Your will is your last chance to make voice heard and to have your final choices carried out as you would have done if you were still around. By not planning your estate via your will, you leave a lot to chance. And if you haven’t lived your life relying on chance, why let it be the case in your death. Not one person knows your wishes and desires as well as you do so when you die without a will and your estate is then governed by the laws of intestacy which means that everything that you have worked your whole life to attain is now governed by a set of rules. Only married or civil partners and some of your close relatives are able to inherit your estate under the laws of intestacy.
