If you die without having made a Will, your property is distributed according to the terms laid down in law, which may not be as you would wish. This is usually more costly to your estate and a slower process. The people you care about most may not be looked after, and it could take a long time and cost a lot of money to resolve matters. This could cause extra distress for your loved ones, during their time of grief.
Having an up to date Will allows for the administration and distribution of your estate (everything you own) after your death. It is important you do this so your wishes are known.
