59% of People Have Not Written a Will: The Legal Team Comments


Doncaster, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/23/2015 -- According to a recent survey of 2000 adults, conducted by Macmillan Cancer Support,59% of people in the UK have not written a will, citing reasons such as 'just never got round to it' and being 'too busy'. Professional wills experts, such as The Legal Team - a group of lawyers with extensive experience in the field of wills and probate - have expressed concern regarding the surveys' findings. The Legal Team says:

"Having a will in place can minimize distress for family and friends when you die, and can also make sure that your assets go where you want them to go. The results of this survey indicates that many people don't see making a will as a priority, are perhaps worried about the cost, or even simply 'frightened' of thinking about it. However, a will is vital if you want to protect your family and friends' future inheritance. It doesn't cost the earth, and can be quite straightforward with the help of an experienced lawyer – and you don't have to wait; you should consider making a will as soon as possible.

By making a will, you can decide what goes to who, how your children will be cared for if you die whilst they are still young, how your estate will be treated if you have children from a former marriage, or you want a partner to whom you are not married to inherit. Written correctly, a will can also help you to minimise inheritance tax liability and reduce the risk of your assets being used to pay for future care fees.

It may sound complex, but our friendly wills and probates experts have been writing wills that meet individuals' needs for many years and will guide you all the way. We have all the expertise necessary to make sure that your will represents your wishes and you are happy that your family's future is secure."
