What happens if I die without making a will?

Dying without a Will is referred to as dying “intestate”. Basically it therefore means that the government decides who will get what.

This goes for everything, not just your possessions. If you die without a Will and you have children, it means other people get to make the decisions about their future.

What exactly is a will?

A Will is a legal document that details what you want to happen in the event of your death. This includes:

  • Your Children
  • Your Money
  • Properties
  • Investments
  • Possessions

You get different types of Will, for example there is a single Will. This is probably the most common type of Will and tells everyone your individual wishes for your estate. The other common type is a mirror will. This is similar to a single Will, but for a couple so that they mirror each other for the most part. However, a Mirror Will may still be personalised.

What types of gifts can I include in my will?

Pecuniary bequest

A fixed sum of money (for example £10,000 to be left to a niece)

Specific bequest

This could be something like a Watch or piece of jewellery you want to go to a specific person. However, any specific item could be left to someone this way.

Residuary bequest

This is generally a percentage of your estate. For example, you may want to leave 5% of everything to a nephew.

Can an executor of a will also be a beneficiary?

An person can be both an executor of your estate and a beneficiary of your estate. This is quite common as long as the person is over 18.

Always make sure your potential executor is aware that they will be an executor of your estate.

Can I include funeral wishes in my will?

Most people include their funeral wishes as part of their Will.

This will usually include the type of funeral they want, for example, burial or cremation. It will also sometimes include any particular poems or songs you may wish to be included.

I’m not married to my partner – should I make a will?

It is arguably even more important for couples that are not married to make a Will.

This is because the laws in the UK are not designed for partners who are not married on in a civil partnership. If you do not have a Will it is entirely possible your partner may end up with nothing.

Mirror Wills

As a couple you will likely want very similar plans for your estate upon your death.

This is where a mirror will comes in. You can plan your estate to mirror each others. This reduces the cost to you as we discount the second Will.
