The article below confirms that nearly a quarter of people die without a will, and in the vast majority of cases, family are relied upon for information as to assets and liabilities. 

This undoubtedly increases the time to administer the estate and the costs of so doing (where solicitors are involved), as well as the likelihood of disputes arising. And, worst case scenario, the risk of costly litigation to resolve these issues.

It is so important to leave your affairs in order to protect those you love and make sure the people you want to inherit can do so!
