Understandably, none of us like to think about dying or what happens to our assets after we have passed away; however, earlier this week, a warning has been issued that those who die without leaving a Will could be forcing their loved ones into a long legal battle.
According to research published this week only two thirds of adults within the UK have left a Will, whilst 80 percent have stated that they are uncomfortable discussing their dying wishes.
Whilst the findings from the research have revealed that two-thirds of adults within the UK have not prepared a Will; those who die without one are said to die intestate, which means that the State decide who gets what assets – and this has the potential to leave family and friends with nothing, and can lead to a long, drawn-out and complicated legal battle.
