Making a Will is something everyone knows they should do. However lots of people never actually get round to doing it and as a result, die intestate (i.e. not having a Will). It is estimated that around 60% of people in Scotland do not have a Will.
No matter how small or large your estate is, having a Will in place is essential to ensure your wishes are met on your death.
Our guide outlines why making a Scottish Will is so important for everyone and the impact on your family of dying without a will/intestate. It outlines legal rights and why it is so critical for:
- Cohabiting couples
- Individuals with stepchildren
