MAKE YOUR WILL YOUR CHOICES

WILLS IN SCOTLAND: YOUR COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO PEACE OF MIND

Dying intestate - without a legal will - puts your estate at significant risk. Without a specifically drawn will, you unwittingly leave the belongings you've spent a lifetime accumulating, including your home and money, subject to Scottish intestate law. The law then decides who receives your assets. Unfortunately, the legal inheritance rules may not mirror the complexities of modern family relationships, likely overlooking unmarried partners or step-children. When you don't have a will, you lack control over the distribution of your estate, which means your possessions may not end up with your chosen heirs. This can seriously impinge on how much support your loved ones receive, and these legislative decisions might not have been your preference.

The Emancipating Power of a Legally-Drafted Will

A will is a powerful tool to ensure that your assets are allocated precisely as per your desires after your demise. Whether you want to designate specific items, a portion of cash, or distribute fractions of your entire estate, a will empowers you to make these preferences legally binding. Additionally, a will lets you express your desired funeral arrangements and any bequests to charities. For parents with children below the age of 16, appointing trusted individuals as guardians in your will guarantees your children will be cared for according to your wishes.
