No matter where you live in the world, making a will is an important process to go through. By having a will, you ensure that your estate and assets are disposed of in a way that corresponds to your wishes.
If you die without a will, your assets may be distributed according to the law instead of your own wishes. Furthermore, if you are a UK citizen living abroad, your country of residency at the time of death may impact the transfer of your assets and estate in the UK. Therefore, although you are not required to make a will by law, it is the best way to decide what happens to your assets after your death.
By taking time to set out your will with a financial adviser, you can decide how your assets are allocated should the unexpected happen. Even if you aren’t married, or perhaps divorced, you can ensure that your partner or former partner is provided for.
