Nobody likes to be constantly reviewing arrangements for when they die and making a will is often neglected by people. It is especially common for those without children to assume that everything will pass on death to their spouse, for example, and on that basis they may believe that there is no need for a will and certainly not for any trust planning.
This is a common misconception as the consequences of dying intestate can be wide-ranging and in particular where your estate has assets in multiple jurisdictions there may be multiple and conflicting issues regarding the distribution of your estate and settlement of estate duties. In most jurisdictions such duties have to be paid before an estate can be passed on and obtaining multiple grants of probate in multiple countries can be time consuming, expensive and frustrating at a time when your loved ones need to grieve and to move on.
