Have you thought about who will inherit your assets when you finally leave this planet? With a will, you can be sure that your valuable possessions will be transferred to people that you choose.
Writing a will does not have to be so difficult. A quick search online will find you plenty of websites with help, advice and a free will writing template to download.
In the definition of the law, ‘inherits’ primarily refers to children, grandchildren and married spouses. Secondary are parents, siblings, nieces and nephews.
Heirs means biological and adopted children, grandchildren and they are entitled to at least 50 percent of the total inheritance. But the remainder you can distribute as you wish. A will must be in writing. It is not enough to tell someone how you wish your assets to be divided.
