Making a will is one of the most important things you will ever do and it is a worrying fact that nearly 3 out of 4 people die without having made one.

If you die without having made a will, the way in which your money, property, treasured items and other assets will be dealt with is done strictly in accordance with the intestacy laws which are very strict and take no account whatsoever of your wishes or particular family circumstances.
