The results of a poll that I looked at last night estimated that that 55% of the adults in Western Australia have no Will, or are not sure if they have a Will.  Of those adults without a Will, only about 9% will have one by the time they pass away, leaving half of the adults who pass away in WA each year doing so without making a Will.  That inevitably makes life difficult for those they leave behind, let alone assets not going where the deceased would have preferred.

There is nothing like the suggestion of mortality to make people think about the fact that they have not got a Will.

At your next breaking-free-of-COVID dinner party, do a straw poll to see how the figures stack up with your friends, then introduce me to those who need a Will. J
