How Important Is It To Have A Last Will And Testament?

A will is very important and enables you to:

  • Appoint an executor of your choice, thus avoiding the delays involved in the appointment of an executor dative.
  • Appoint heirs of your choice, avoiding the arbitrary rules on intestacy and ensuring that your wishes are carried out.
  • Protect the interests of your heirs, e.g. by appointing a guardian for minor children and/or a professional trustee to administer their inheritance.
