How STRONG WILLED are YOU? Page 4
If you die without a Will (intestate) the laws of intestacy come into force and dictate who will receive your possessions.
For example, if you are single, your assets will be distributed equally in this order, to your living parents, brothers and sisters, living grandparents, living aunts and uncles and if none of the above are still living to the Crown.
If you are married, or have entered into a civil partnership, do not assume that your partner will inherit everything– brothers, sisters and children may also be entitled.
If you have made a Will in the past but since remarried, do not assume that your old Will is still valid. Upon re-marrying any existing Will you had will be rendered void and cannot be relied upon.
If you are living as a couple (co-habitués), but have not married nor entered into a civil partnership, do not assume that your partner will receive all that you leave. The law may well treat you as a single person regarding the distribution of your assets and it is possible that your partner may receive nothing including your home together.
If you are retired and made a Will some time ago do not assume that all the provisions made are still valid. Check that all beneficiaries are still alive and that specific gifts still exist.
It is worth taking a few minutes if you have not made a Will or your circumstances have changed since you last made a Will so that you can ensure that your estate is divided AS YOU WISH.
