Karen Barrett, Chief Executive of unbiased.co.uk, comments: “What is evident from our research are people’s good intentions to ensure loved ones are taken care of when they are no longer around. However, it is worrying to see how few have a will in place, leaving no guarantee their wishes will be executed as they intended and potentially putting them and their family in a vulnerable position.
“When it comes to writing a will, procrastination rules for too many, with most believing they should make their will when they are older. Those with wills are often unaware they can register their will too, which ensures loved ones will be able find your will when you are no longer around. Joining forces with Certainty.co.uk, we are working to raise people’s awareness of the importance of writing and registering a will. It is never too soon to make a will and it will provide you with the knowledge and peace of mind that your family will be protected and secure.”
