Making a Will

By Brendan • March 13th, 2013

A Will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. It essentially contains your wishes and intentions for the disposal of your property and possessions after you die.

If you die without making a Will, you lose control over who gets what. In this instance, you will have died ‘intestate’ and the State, through the laws of intestacy, will make the decision on your behalf.  Another effect is that your estate will be more time consuming and costly to administer by the Solicitor.

However, if you have a valid Will, it will be quicker and less costly to administer your estate.  You also have the benefit of deciding who gets what.  A Will is a living document and can be changed at any time.  It isn’t expensive to draw up and the peace of mind it can give is considerable.

At Brendan Burke Solicitors, we’ll take you through the process of making a valid Will, enabling you to express your wishes clearly and fully, and gain complete peace of mind.  We note the details of your assets – what and where they are and the names of the people you want to have them following your death.  We then draw up a draft Will for you to examine and to change if you wish.  Once you’re happy, we prepare the final version, which you sign in the presence of two witnesses.

Wills are often straightforward but some involve complicated arrangements – all the more reason to ensure they are drawn up by a Solicitor.

It is important to keep your Will safe.  Ask your Solicitor to keep the original and to give you a certified copy.  Also make sure that your two Executors know who your Solicitor is and that he or she is holding the original Will.
