What happens if I leave someone out of my Will?


If you have not properly provided for any of your dependants who are unable to maintain themselves, or if you have not been fair to your spouse (or an ex-spouse who has not remarried), then under an act of law called the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependents) Act 1975 the Court can alter your Will.  Any reasons for leaving someone out should, therefore, be given in a separate letter of wishes. The Court will then consider these reasons although it will not be bound by them.
