Will Explanatory Notes
Before you begin, there are certain things you will need to consider:
- Who you would like to be the executor of your Will. This is a very important role as they are the person or organisation appointed under a Will to protect, gather in and distribute the estate.
- Who you would like to be the guardian of any children under the age of 18, if you pass away? Consideration needs to be given to the impact it may have on that person or people and also where they may live.
- Whether there are specific gifts you want to gift to any people or charities such as jewellery, cash, etc.
- Who you would like the remainder of your estate to go to once your specific gifts have been made – and alternatively, if they are not around, whom else it would go to?
- You may only continue if you are over 18 since this is a legal requirement to creating a Will (exceptions may apply).
