What Should I Include In My Will ?

 

There needs to be sufficient identification that the Will is yours. The usual things included in a Will are distributions of property, arrangements for looking after your children (if they are under 18), an executor (the person who manages your estate after you die) and what should happen if the people who you want to receive property die before you do. You can include conditions on dispositions and create a trust in the Will. Your Will needs to revoke all prior Wills. Your solicitor will ensure that all the necessary inclusions are provided for, as well as any additions you want to make which are particular to your circumstances. There must be two witnesses present when you sign the Will and they must also sign it.
