Why writing a will should be your top priority in 2014

Writing a will can save those closest to you from the heartache and trouble that is often caused by dying without one.

Yet according to research by the National Consumer Council, more than 6 out of every 10 people in the UK haven’t made a will, and a staggering half of us never do.

Many people believe that if they don't write a will, all their possessions will automatically go to their husband, wife or partner. But it's not as simple as that.

Dying without a will means a person's belongings are subject to a set of fixed rules (called 'intestacy laws'. Challenging these can be expensive, and there's no guarantee that the person's wishes will be fulfilled.
