It is essential that you have a Will if you own any type of property. If you do not have a Will, then the Intestacy Rules will apply meaning that it is not your choice who inherits your assets.
If you are not married or in a civil partnership your estate will not automatically pass to your partner, and they could be left with nothing. If you have children, your Will will provide certainty of who will look after them and how they will be provided for.
Yes, a marriage/Civil partnership will void a Will so if you would like your assets to go someone else other thank your new Husband/Wife then you need to ensure a new Will is drafted.
