Have Your Circumstances Changed?

Article by

When was the last time you reviewed your Will?
Many people finally get round to making their Will, breathe a sigh of relief and forget all about it. Whilst a Will can cover many different eventualities, it is still vitally important that you regularly check the contents to see if it still meets your exact wishes and requirements.

How often should I review my Will?
We recommend that you review your Will at least every couple of years, and in particular if any of the following situations are relevant to you: 

> You remarry
> You cohabit with a new partner
> You separate from a partner or spouse
> You have a child or become a grandparent
> You move house or buy an additional property either in the UK or abroad
> You receive a large inheritance or windfall
> You start a new business
> You retire
> One of your beneficiaries goes through a divorce
> One of your beneficiaries enters financial difficulty and faces possible bankruptcy
> One of your beneficiaries predeceases you
> One of your beneficiaries has a disability
> Your partner or spouse goes into care

This is not an exhaustive list and if any of your or your beneficiaries’ personal circumstances change we would recommend that you contact us for a free will review.
