Article preview: One of the most important things you can do in life is write a will. Dying without a will, known as dying intestate, means your wishes are not necessarily followed. Instead, your property and other wealth is distributed according to legislation. Despite its obvious importance, especially for those with partners and children, an incredibly high number of adults in the UK do not have a valid will in place. More than half of the adult population of the UK admit to not having a will. Of those who do not have a will, nearly a quarter admitted they have no intention of making one and a third said that experiencing an illness would encourage them to do so.
