It is a way to provide for any family, friends and charities that are close to your heart. Having a will can also relieve any pressures placed on your family and friends at a difficult time, as they will know what your wishes are in relation to your estate. It is an easy process to undertake and can be reviewed and amended in the future if you wish.
