What happens to an estate when there is a Will?
Making a Will is very important. It means an estate is distributed according to a person’s wishes. In addition, the Inheritance Tax bill is likely to be lower and estate administration quicker and more straightforward.
When someone makes a Will, they choose one or more executors themselves. It is the executor’s responsibility to administer their estate in accordance with law and the terms of their Will. An executor can be a close relative, somebody the person has known and trusted for a long time, or a professional such as a solicitor.
