To ensure that your wishes are followed after your death it is essential to show your wishes have been considered in a formal way and that you have provided due consideration as to what should happen to your estate and possessions, or perhaps more importantly, what should not happen.
Unfortunately many people do not have a will and therefore on their death their possessions and accumulation of assets can pass to someone who they have not previously considered to be entitled to the same.
By taking the time to consider what your wishes are following your death, a simple will can be drafted to ensure that those wishes are complied with. The existence of a will can also help to avoid the litigation that may arise in some circumstances where the wishes of the deceased are in dispute by family members or friends.
From considering a few key points a will can be drafted which specifically identifies your wishes as to specific items that you may possess or your estate in general. In times where litigation is more widespread there is no better way of achieving peace of mind by clarifying your wishes in a formal will to ensure that loved ones are looked after or that your specific item of family heritage which has been with you for generations remains within your family.
