So you’ve got a Will, congratulations! But is it up to date?
You should review your Will every 2-3 years or whenever a major event occurs in your family or your assets.
Key times to review and update your Will:
NAME CHANGE: if you change your name, or anybody named in the Will changes theirs
EXECUTOR CHANGE: if an executor dies or becomes unwilling to act as executor or becomes unsuitable due to age, ill health or for any other reason
DEATH: if a beneficiary dies
CHANGE IN PROPERTY: if you have specifically left any property which you subsequently sell or give away, or put in trust or into a partnership
MARRIAGE: if you marry
DIVORCE: if you divorce
LOVE: if you enter a domestic partnership or personal relationship
HEARTBREAK: if you end a domestic partnership or personal relationship
BIRTH: if a child of yours is born or a child is adopted or fostered.
