Signing a will

Around 65 per cent of Britons are storing up potential problems for their families and loved ones because they haven't made a will, according to a new survey.

The survey - carried out by Lawpack publishing - launches National Will Week which aims to highlight the importance of making a will and the potential consequences of dying intestate – or without a will.

If you die without making a will, your wealth could go to the person you least want to have it and your family could lose out, perhaps to the Inland Revenue.

Whether you are single, married, divorced or co-habiting, you can write a will so that your wishes can be carried out without complications.
