A Will is not a legal requirement and is not essential. However, should you die without a valid will being made within your lifetime, then your estate is distributed in accordance with the law, and this is referred to as intestacy. 

If you don’t want this to happen, and to make the probate process as easy as possible for your loved ones, then it is definitely worth considering having a will drafted.

Generally, a Will is not a complicated document to prepare. However, there are certain formalities that must be undertaken for a Will to be deemed valid. If a Will is deemed invalid, then the intestacy rules will apply and again, your estate would be distributed in accordance with law as opposed to your wishes and intentions for your estate after death.

Therefore, it is always preferable to instruct a Solicitor to ensure that all formalities are complied with and that you have a valid will in place prior to death.
