Isle of Man Will - Why So Important?

Isle of Man Wills are surrounded by misconception and a general lack of clear understanding. Often, people believe they’re either not old enough or don’t have enough wealth to justify paying to have a will written.

This view is misguided as a will is extremely important for anyone, regardless of age or wealth. If you pass away and you’ve not left a will in place, it’s likely to cause unnecessary stress and expense for your loved ones.

What Are The Benefits Of Writing A Will?

Having an Isle of Man will written is beneficial for all, whether you’re unmarried, have children or little wealth at the current time of writing.

A will documents decisions relevant to your personal situation and can:

  • Reduce family stresses at an already sensitive time
  • Provide guidance on how any wealth and assets should be distributed
  • Specify what happens to your belongings and any special treasures such as jewellery
  • Arrange for any wealth to be donated to charity
  • Appoint a legal guardian to care for any children or other dependents
  • Safeguard your business and ensure that it’s inherited by someone you trust

Having a will in place not only helps your family and friends, but it gives you peace of mind during your lifetime. None of us can predict the future, and that’s why it’s crucial to organise your affairs in advance.

You can have a will written at any time in your adult life and it’s advisable to get the process started in your 20s. Wills are easily updated whenever your circumstances change.

What Can I Include In My Will?

A will reflects your wishes and can contain some standard information, as well as specialised details relevant to your circumstances.

You can include:

  1. A list of personal belongings you own and how you would like these assets to be divided
  2. Descriptions of who you would like to name as beneficiaries (people who inherit your assets)
  3. Family (e.g. parents, spouse or partner, children)
    • Friends or acquaintances
    • Your favourite charity
  4. Details of your funeral arrangements (e.g. cremation or burial)
  5. An explanation of what your children will receive (if applicable), including naming a legal guardian if they’re under the age of 18
  6. The names of those who you wish to be executor(s) of your will
    • This person will be responsible for arranging the details you include and handling finances
