Where should I start?
You should begin by thinking about who you’d like to be a beneficiary and what you’d like them to inherit. It could be a good idea to speak to your family, as they might have suggestions you haven’t considered. Before you begin writing your will, you should fully understand your assets and your debts.
Your assets include any property, savings, shares and investments, pensions, life insurance policies and other belongings. Your debts include anything you owe – such as mortgages, loans and credit card debts. This gives you the net value of your estate. Remember, the value will change constantly, which is why you may need to amend your will if your circumstances change.
