Special Will Considerations for Unmarried Couples
It is crucial for everyone over the age of 18 years to have an updated legal will prepared by a solicitor or other legal professional.
Having a will is especially important for an unmarried couple. It is a common misconception that your partner will get your estate if you die without a will.
If you die intestate, without a will, your estate will be handed over to the Treasury for distribution however they see fit. The distribution of your estate may not be handled in the manner you would have desired. Your beloved life partner may get nothing. And that's not what you want, is it?
This is why it is absolutely crucial for all unmarried couples to have a legally binding will. With a will you can ensure that your money, property, assets and possessions are distributed to the individuals of your choosing in the way you want.
