When thinking about creating a will it is important to consider who will benefit under your Will.
Do you want any particular items, such as valuable jewellery, to go to specific people?
Do you have a partner and/or child that you need to provide for?
If you have a child, you will need to decide who will be their guardian, and at what age they should receive any entitlement under the Will (e.g. will it be at 18 or older?). It is important to have a discussion with potential guardians prior to appointing them in your Will.
If you have any specific funeral instructions such as where you would like the funeral ceremony to take place or if you want to be cremated or buried, you can include these in your Will too.
You will also need to consider who you wish to make executor of your Will. An executor is a person or organisation that is responsible for carrying out your wishes as instructed in your Will.
