Have you made a will?
Planning for what happens after you die is the best way of taking care of the loved ones you leave behind. When you have a will in place you have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out.
It’s not just about money; your will can specify who you want to be guardian of your children (or even your pets) and it can prevent painful family disputes over your estate.
Without a will, the law decides what happens to your estate and it may not be what you want. Find out more about what happens if you die without making a will.
Why make a Will?
- It gives you peace of mind and certainty
- It ensures your valued possessions go to the right people
- It provides for your partner if you are not married
- If you are divorced you can decide whether to leave anything to your ex-partner
- You can ensure you do not pay more inheritance tax than necessary
- You can appoint the guardians you want to look after your children
How do I make a Will?
If your plans are very straightforward, it may be fine to do it yourself. But if you have any concerns, a solicitor will be able to advise you; this is particularly important with issues such as Inheritance Tax or if you have been married more than once.

What should I include in my will?
You should consider:
- What property and assets you have
- Who you wish to benefit from your will
- If you have young children, who will care for them
- Who will be your executor – this is the person who will sort out the distribution of your estate and carrying out your wishes
As well as writing your will for you, PM Law can act as your executor. This means you will have an experienced and professional practitioner to look after your affairs. Contact us for more details using the contact buttons below.
Can I change my will?
Yes, you should keep your will under review and make any changes if your circumstances change. Did you know an existing will is invalidated if you marry? PM Law can help you create a new will.
