When should you update your will?

It’s recommended that you update your will every two years. This is to make sure that any changes in your circumstances are reflected in your will. This includes things like:

  • You have a new child
  • You get engaged, married or divorced
  • You move house
  • You buy or sell any property
  • You inherit money or property
  • One of your executors, beneficiaries or guardians dies
  • You want to change who is inheriting your estate
  • You want to add a specific gift or message to someone you love
  • Inheritance tax legislation or the law governing wills changes
