Wills

  • Why do I need a Will?
  • Ask yourself these questions:
  • Are you married?
  • Are you a parent?
  • Do you own property?
  • Are you a home-owner?

 

By making a Will you can decide what becomes of your property when you die and make provisions for your family members. You decide what happens to your home and possessions and ensure you loved ones are provided for sufficiently.

What happens to my assets if I do not make a Will?

If you die without making a Will (intestate) your property will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy provisions of the Succession Act, 1965. That distribution may not be what you wish or expect and it could give rise to unnecessary Inheritance Tax having to be paid by your next of kin.
