DIY Will Drafting and Digital Assets – what can go wrong? | STEP East Midlands

Produced in collaboration with STEP East Midlands.

The current pandemic has brought an increase in the number of people making wills, many of them homemade. However, many of these Wills can be badly drafted and fail to deal with all the assets that a person has, particularly their digital assets. 

Debra Burton and Ashley Blood-Halvorsen, a specialist contentious probate and estates Barrister at 3 Paper Buildings, discuss the common problems encountered with badly drafted Wills including: 

Construction issues
The risk of full/partial intestacy
Validity concerns
Unintended IHT consequences
 
The risk of litigation
The risk of unclaimed assets, and how this can impact on the estate administration
