There are so many life events which may prompt you to make a will; from becoming a grandparent to buying a new home, getting married or getting diagnosed with a life limiting illness. Whatever the reason, writing a will gives you the power to decide how your assets are dealt with after your death and is an invaluable tool to help protect your family’s future.

The most important part of preparing your will is being able to decide who should receive your assets when you die. Your will allows you to leave specific legacies, such as items of jewellery or antiques, to your beneficiaries and your will can also be used to make cash gifts to members of your family, friends or charities, like Dove House Hospice.
