If you are single

The Government have a Will all ready for you, if you don’t write one yourself. Unfortunately it won’t necessarily go the way you want it to go! No friends can benefit and no charities… Under the Laws of Intestacy, if you have no children then if both or either of your parents are alive they will benefit from your estate. Failing them it will be brothers and sisters, failing them half-brothers or half-sisters, failing them grandparents, failing them uncles, aunts, or potentially their children. If that doesn’t meet with any success your estate will pass to the CROWN (HM Government).

Other points

What about your funeral ? No wishes expressed, maybe no financial provision
Your estate will be handled by a person you did not choose and a professional will charge your estate for costs and expenses
Your estate will almost certainly take longer to conclude
Writing a Will lets your loved ones and others know you cared enough to sort things out in advance.
