I am 34 and was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour last year I am having chemotherapy but I know it’s not going to be cured.
I do think I should write a will and I trained as a lawyer so I can do it myself - it’s not complicated but for some reason keep putting it off
2 reasons that come to mind are
I just want my property to pass as it would under intestacy anyway
getting 2 witnesses will be a faff as I live with next of kin and I’d have to find others and I don’t want to get into conversation why I want them to witness a will
anyone else experienced this
I had written my will long before I was diagnosed with cancer so I haven't been in exactly the same position as you. As a will can be written at anytime, and not just when you're ill, I don't think you need to explain anything that you don't want to to any witness.
