Here at Nest Financial Services, we understand that Wills can be an emotive and extremely sensitive subject.
Should you die without a Will, or if your Will is deemed to be invalid (e.g. if it wasn’t completed or signed correctly) then you are said to have died intestate. This results in the laws of the land deciding how your estate is to be distributed, and this can often cause delays, hardship, unnecessary worry, or even disagreements amongst those who are left behind.
Many people think that everything is automatically left to their “Next of Kin” unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
Without a Will …
- You cannot be sure those who you would wish to benefit will actually do so
- Your spouse / civil partner will not automatically inherit ALL of your estate
- “Common Law” partners may not receive anything
- Minor children could be taken into care whilst Guardians are appointed
- There could be lengthy delays for your beneficiaries due to disputes
However, there are a number of ways in which your home, savings and business can be safeguarded, including:
- Bloodline Planning to ensure your children’s inheritance
- Estate Preservation Property Trusts
- Home Protection Plans
- Business Succession Planning
Irrespective of your age or the value of your estate, making a Will and putting your affairs in order is one of the most important tasks you are ever likely to undertake. At Nest Financial Services, we can introduce you to a third party supplier who can provide you with advice in these areas. Neither Nest Financial Services (UK) Ltd nor First Complete Ltd is responsible for any advice provided by a third party.
