5 Reasons why you should have a will

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.

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).
