Less than half of people living in Britain have a Will

Despite the fact that our firm along with many others have experienced a surge in enquiries about Wills since the Covid19 outbreak, a recent survey has revealed that barely 40% of adults living in the UK have a valid Will. 

The research also found that almost 90% of adults weren’t aware that a Will that is written in England may not be valid in Scotland or vice versa.  There are important legal differences between the systems that people need to be aware of – for example in Scotland you cannot legally remove your spouse or children as beneficiaries, even if you have a Will which doesn’t include them, as there are basic rights called “legal rights” to a share of your Estate, which cannot be removed. This means that even estranged family can still claim on our assets.
