There are two ways of dying:
- with a Will; or
- without a Will.
Here are some reasons why we would strongly recommend that you die with a Will.
- You get to choose your heirs.
Drafting a Will is the best way of ensuring that your possessions get given to the people of your choice. If you die without a Will your possessions are distributed according to the law of intestate succession. People who you don’t particularly like may land up inheriting (like your long-lost drug-addict sister), or the people you do want to inherit may land up getting nothing (like your long-suffering girlfriend).
