How do I make sure I leave as much as possible to my partner?
If married or cohabiting couples do not make any arrangements prior to their death, they risk the surviving partner falling into financial difficulties. By putting in place a will or inheritance agreement, they can ensure that their life partner will at least get some of their estate. Even if no special instructions are given, married people are still entitled to some of their deceased spouse’s assets. In many cases, this statutory amount is not enough, however.
