Approximately 66% of people die without making a Will. I know it is one of those things we like to put off. I even have a confession to make that I asa Solicitor didn’t get round to making my Will until recently.

By making a Will you can decide what happens to your property and possessions after your death. Although you don't have to make one by law, it is the best way to make sure that your estate is passed on to family, friends or charities exactly as you wish.
