Research shows that 1 in 2 adults do not have a will and most people do not consider it necessary until they are in their fifties. This is surprising when most of these people have already built up significant assets and have children and other loved ones that they would wish to provide for in the event of their death. It is also the case that many people ask will writing firms who are not regulated or insured to deal with their wills and assets.
