How Often Should I Update My Will?

Some people review their will very regularly. Others do it once then forget all about it — to the point where it is unfortunately woefully out of date at their time of death.

The key is to get a proper balance.

Do it, tick it off your list, then forget about it for a few years. In fact you may not have to update it for ten years or more.

The time when it is important to update is when you have a major life event, like getting married, divorced, or you have a child.

When any of those events or similar events happen then it is really sensible to revisit your Will again and bring it up to date.

If you have not updated your Will in a long time, or perhaps have not even got a Will yet, call us today and we can ensure this critically important document is in place, well in advance of it ever being required.
