Will writing and Estate Planning

will writing 1

Estate planning is a recurring process and ought to be started when you have any quantifiable assets. As you get older and your objectives change, your estate plan can also change. A lack of sufficient estate planning could cause excessive financial problems for your beneficiaries so a will should certainly be made even if your taxable estate is not that large.

Your estate covers all of your belongings — your car, your house, any savings accounts, investments, life policies, furniture and individual belongings.

You should have written instructions as to whom you wish to leave things to and what you would like them to have. Estate planning sets out a strategy of what you would like to happen when you die.

Estate planning  and will writing should not be considered to be only for “retired” people. We cannot foresee when we will die and it is therefore important to plan ahead.
