With so many reasons why we should make our Will this is so commonly the area where people fail to make provision.
I regularly see couples who have been in a relationship for decades and are only just making a Will.
It is so important to have a Will and keep it up to date, even more so if you intend to leave your assets to someone who you are not married to or someone outside of your family.
Unmarried couples should update their wills to ensure if they die their partner isn't left high and dry.If a couple is not married (or in a civil partnership), and either partner dies without a will, the one left behind may not be a beneficiary of the deceased's estate and could receive nothing. Any assets would probably go to children, possibly to estranged husbands or wives, or even, in the absence of close relatives, the government.
