There are all sorts of advantages to making a will:
- You can control who inherits your assets when you die
- You have an opportunity to deal with Inheritance Tax issues and potentially plan for care fees
- You can appoint a legal guardian for any children you have who are under the age of 18
- You can ensure your estate does not pass to the government under the rules of Bona Vacantia
- You can set up specialised trusts for your loved-ones who might not be able to cope with an outright gift of cash (for example a disabled beneficiary or someone going through bankruptcy proceedings)
- If you are not married but are in a long-term relationship, making a will could be vital to ensure your partner is provided for
