Will Templates

By making a Will you are ensuring that your family and others specified in your Will are provided for. If you do not make a Will your estate will be distributed under the rules of intestacy as dictated by the Government; this is very unlikely to reflect your intentions and will probably increase the tax burden on your estate. These Wills provide for same-sex couples in a civil partnership where appropriate.
