One of the most important and simplest steps you should take in financial planning is to make a Will. Writing a Will ensures that your affairs are properly looked after after you pass away, and that your assets will go to those who you choose.
When a person passes away without leaving a valid Will, their estate is said to be intestate, and their estate is therefore governed by the Intestate Succession Act. In simple terms, you will not have any say who gets what.
When engaging a lawyer to write your will, you are preparing for your families future without you. It can also help reduce disputes that can sometimes arise among members of your family regarding the distribution of your assets. Along with writing your Will, we also recommend that you consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney. This is a legal document in which you appoint a Donee to make decisions and act on your behalf should you lose mental capacity one day. A donee can be appointed to act in the two broad areas of personal welfare and property & matters.
What should a Will include?
Your Will should state:
- That this is your last Will.
- That you revoke all previous Wills.
- Who you appoint as your Executor.
- The beneficiaries and guardians for minor children and how much each one is to receive.
- A residuary clause.
