Local firm Asset Guardian Wills Ltd are reminding Swindon people how important it is to make and have a Will in place.

The local business say it has been found that over 60% of people in England and Wales do not have a will in place.

Asset Guardian Wills say they believe this to be a worrying statistic - that all those people have not told their loved ones what their wishes are once the inevitable comes.

When making a will, the firm say there are several things to think about. There's who you want to benefit from your will, who would look after your children if under 18, and who is going to sort out your estate and carry out your wishes after your death. The team however, say these are just the basics.

The company are asking the following questions:

  • What do you do if you share a property with someone who isn’t your husband, wife, or civil partner?
  • What do you do if you want to leave money or property to a dependant who can’t care for themselves?

For some families Asset Guardian say it is not as straight-forward - for example having children from previous marriages without a will in place could mean your children could miss out on their inheritance.

The business is a locally-based Swindon family firm of will writers and estate planners with over 27 years of experience.

The majority of its appointments are said to be conducted in the comfort of the client's own home at a time that is convenient for them.

Asset Guardian Wills prides itself upon being members of the ‘Society of Will Writers’ - a governing body for the profession.

Asset Guardian Wills Ltd also offer other services. This includes Preparing and Registering Lasting Power of Attorney documents and probate services.
