When thinking about your life in the bigger picture, it is normally the case that you naturally put a time scale on certain life events that you want to reach by a particular age. This could be when you want to get married by, have kids by, or retire by. But having a will is quite different, as it doesn’t have a particular “average age” attached to it.

With the tragic and heart breaking times we are living in as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, more people than ever are making wills, just to be on the safe side. With this being the harsh reality, we here at St Helens Law are on hand to give you as much information we can, sharing our many years of expertise with will writing services in St Helens with you.

Writing your will can be done at any time and could be best to complete/update when you feel like you have people and assets that would be protected by your will if you pass away. Here are 3 events that might make you want to change or update your will.

If you buy a house

Buying your own home can be an exciting time for everyone involved. It can finally allow you be proud of the home you own, as well as building a stable future for your whole family. To keep the property secure you can further improve your families’ future prospects by putting it in your will. This allows you to state exactly who you want to inherit it, as well as any money you may have free in your bank.

By making or updating your will once you have bought your house, you can have peace of mind that it will remain in the right hands and in your control.

If you are not married to your partner

If you have a partner but are not yet married to them (we get it, it can be an expensive commitment to arrange a wedding!) then it may be useful creating or updating a will to ensure that your partner has rights to inherit what you leave behind. This is because if you are not legally bound by marriage, then they are not entitled to anything that you own when you’re gone.

By writing a will in St Helens with the help and experience of St Helens Law, you are able to give reassurance to both yourself and your partner that your belongings will be delegated to your significant other if you pass away.

If you have kids

If you have children under the age of 18 or adult children who you are the named carer of, then making a will may be something that has crossed your mind in order to protect them. Having their future secured in the small possibility that you pass away is something that can give you peace of mind for the future with the knowledge that all bases are covered.
