Please Don’t Make a Will
This may seem strange advice coming from a solicitor but in actual fact our profession make far more money out of people who don’t make Wills than people who do.
If you don’t make a Will, your estate is divided according to the provisions of the Succession Act 1965. If you are single and have parents your estate will go to them. If you have no parents but brother and sisters your estate will go to them in equal shares. If you are married with no children and don’t make a Will, your wife will inherit everything. If you are married with children and you don’t make a Will, your wife will inherit two thirds of the estate and the children will inherit one third between them.
