Mirror Wills are the perfect way to protect the estate of a couple. You and your partner are able to specify the family and loved ones you would like to benefit from your estate after your death.
You should choose this option if neither of you already has a Will or you want to replace your old Wills.
If you do not have a Will, you have no say over what happens to your assets when you die and this can cause difficulties for those you care about most.
Because of this, everyone should have a Will; this is particularly true if you own property, are married, have entered into a civil partnership or have a long-term partner. It also applies if you have children or other dependants, or if you wish to leave something to someone who is not a close family member.
It is a common belief that if you are married or in a civil partnership, your spouse or civil partner will automatically inherit everything you own when you die. This is not true. The law sets out rules that determine how your assets are to be divided if you should die without leaving a Will.
Our customers have told us that once they had made their Will, they felt a huge sense of relief. They realised that, in doing so, they have legally recorded how they wanted their assets divided after their death, thus providing their loved ones with the security they deserve.
So start protecting your loved ones today – there’s never been a better time to get your will sorted.
