Writing a will

By making a will you are showing concern for your family as well as directing what happens to your property and possessions after your death.

Perhaps equally importantly, in a will you choose the person or persons you wish to deal with your affairs and you reduce the possibility of distressing family arguments after your death.

More information about writing a will is available on the Directgov website.

Many people qualify for help with the cost of writing a will. Further information about this is available from the Scottish Legal Aid Board website or by calling the Legal Aid Helpline on 0845 122 8686.
