Death is one of those inevitable life occurrences that affect everyone yet still catches one off guard. In the event of the passing of a loved one, having a will in place provides certainty, security, and clarity of who should be the beneficiaries of your estate.

It could be so that you already have a will, but when last was it revised? It is critical to update it regularly, especially after a significant life event such as a birth, death, marriage,divorce, or any major asset purchases.

Furthermore, who have you entrusted with the power of fulfilling your last wishes? The administration of an estate can be as challenging as navigating a maze blindfolded. Therefore, it is important to appoint a trusted person, preferably a professional, to lead this process in ensuring that your property is divided according to your wishes and settling any outstanding debts.
