We always advise our clients to make a will. It is important to make a will to ensure that your wishes are met in the event of your death. There are clear financial benefits to making a will but having a will is also likely to mean that your estate will get distributed more quickly than if you were to die intestate.
When you die intestate, the laws of intestate succession will decide how your property and assets are distributed on your death. If no relatives can be found, your entire estate would go to the state.
