Letter of wishes (WL001)

A letter of wishes is an informal letter addressed to your executors or to the trustees of any trust created by your Will. It is used to tell them what you would like to happen following your death. Unlike your Will, the letter of wishes does not become publicly available when you die. It can be used to help or guide your executors or trustees on pretty much anything you wish. A letter of wishes can be a very useful document in assisting your executors, and you should therefore give serious thought to writing one, and updating it periodically. It may also serve as evidence to defend a claim, for example, by any dependants who challenge your Will on the grounds that you have not made proper provision for that child or children during their lifetime.
