There is a short answer to this and it is YES in most circumstances, you do need a will. A will is vital to ensure your wishes are carried out. If you want your estate the divided as you wish, then a will takes care of that.
If you are married it does not mean that your spouse or civil partner inherits your estate automatically. A will ensures that all your wishes are carried out.
Unmarried & Living Together
Unmarried couples have no automatic inheritance rights. If an unmarried partner passes without making sufficient provision for their surviving partner in their Will then the survivor has no automatic right to an inheritance from the estate
Own a Business
If you own a business, on your own or with a partner, it is important to include your wishes around what should happen with your business in the event of your passing.
Own a Property
A will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind, therefore if you own a property you should ensure you have a will that is up to date.
To ensure your estate is divided the way in which you wish in the event of your death, a will provides clear instructions that ensures there isn't added complexity and potential conflict with your children.
Children From a Previous Relationship
If you have children from a previous relationship it is vital you have an up to date will. If you re-marry and you have no will, in the event of your death your children will not inherit any of your estate, it would go to your spouse.
If you have grandchildren and you would like them to also inherit from your estate as well as your children, this needs to be specified in your will.
It is believed that a staggering 46% of adults either don't have a will or don't have an up to date one.
In today’s busy world we don't get a chance to stop and catch a breath, this is especially true for young families who are normally juggling work, children and many other daily tasks.

It may seem like an expense you don't need or you might be under the impression it is costly to create a will. In fact a standard will can be created for just £99.95, so it is a small price to pay for peace of mind that your wishes are carried out.
Perhaps you see creating a will to be something you do when you are old. On the contrary, a will is important for people of all ages, in many situations.
