A key part of estate planning is ensuring you have a valid will in place. A will has key elements to it including:
setting out your estate and detailing your various assets
specifying how you wish to divide your estate and to whom you'd like to leave your assets to
appointing any guardians to look after any children under 18
appointing executors to carry out the instructions contained in your will
Without a will, it is assumed that you die intestate and therefore your assets are dealt with in accordance to the Intestacy rules.
Many modern relationships involve cohabitation and partnership without the official sanction of union through the institution of marriage. As the rules of intestacy fail to recognise this type of ‘unofficial’ family structure, it is crucial for couples who are not married to make wills, in order to avoid falling back on these outdated rules.
