Deciding how to divide

What should you consider when deciding what to give, to whom and how when writing a will?

This video will help you:

  • understand the difference between gifts and dividing your estate.
  • prepare your will the way you want.

Making a will doesn’t mean making a list of every item you own.

Instead, you decide how to divide your estate more broadly.

All the same, you may want to leave some special gifts to people or organisations you care about – maybe a treasured item or a sum of money.

Top tips

  • Name two backups to each beneficiary of your estate, just in case your first or second choice is no longer alive.
  • Think about any debts or liabilities you have or promises you've made. They get settled from your estate first.
