Why NOT having a will puts your family at risk! When Rick Mayall sadly passed away in 2014, he left no Will. As a result his £1.2m estate became subject to Inheritance Tax (IHT). Had he made a Will and left everything to his partner, there would have been no IHT to pay whatsoever. For the sake of approximately £100-£150 his estate would not have suffered hundreds of thousands of pounds tax payable. Neglect such as this is unforgivable!
