good life, good death, good grief

Making a will

By making a will you are showing care and concern for your family as well as directing what happens to your property and possessions after your death.

Perhaps equally importantly, in a will you choose the person or persons you wish to deal with your affairs and you reduce the possibility of distressing family arguments after your death.

More information about writing a will is available on the Directgov website.

Many people qualify for help with the cost of writing a will. Find out more through the Scottish Legal Aid Board’s eligibility estimators. The Financial Assessment Unit can assist with enquiries on eligibility on 0131 560 2164.

Our Reluctant Planners Guide To Death and Dying gives a first hand account of preparing a will.
