Why do I need a Will?
Having a will is vital if you want to help ensure that your wishes are met after you die. Writing a Will can help ensure that your property and assets are managed and distributed according to your wishes. Without a Will administering an estate can be much more time consuming and stressful. There is also the possibility that beneficiaries you may not have chosen could benefit from your estate, as dictated by legislation.
