2016 has been a year of celebrity deaths, the most recent being the sad news of Pete Burns. Many celebrities such as Prince, Rik Mayall and Amy Winehouse died without having made a will, i.e. intestate, causing extra grief and financial consequences for their family at an already difficult time. There have been a number of reports about these issues and statistics shown here by the Citizens Advice Bureau highlight the confusion that can result. Whether of high net worth, young or old, making a will can avoid these problems.
