A basic will sets out what will happen to your money, assets and property after you die. It also establishes who’ll become the legal guardian(s) of any children aged under 18 at the time of your death.
A basic will covers:
- The appointment of executors, i.e. the person(s) who’ll administer your will.
- The appointment of trustees, for example, the people you choose to look after your children’s inheritance until they’re 18.
- The appointment of legal guardians for any of your children aged under 18
- The individuals that you’d like to receive your estate (assets)
- Any specific gifts and legacies you wish to make, for example, to a favourite charity
- Your funeral wishes.
