are you risking your family's inheritance with an out of date will?

A very respected charity has just revealed that one in three people with a Will have admitted it is out of date and needs amending.  In money terms, this means that over £1.1 trillion of assets could be at risk of ending up in the wrong hands.  What a frightening thought!  We remind all our clients to dust off their Wills and check that they are still up to date after as little as three years.  What were you doing three years ago?  The top five major life events are marriage, divorce, an addition to the family, the death of a family member and cohabitation.  Have any of these occurred to you during that period?  These are but a few of the major life events which might cause us all to think about updating our Wills.
