When drafting your will, don't use vague language. If you have multiple heirs, using language such as “in equal measure” still leaves room for disagreement over who gets what as their share. Instead, designate specific assets to specific individuals- unless the asset is easily divisible such as cash in a bank account.
While most people generally account for large assets when drafting their will, remember to include smaller, sentimental assets . Your home may be your most valuable asset, but small belongings with sentimental value often lead to disagreements as well. Be sure to designate the distribution of sentimental objects so that your heirs aren't fighting over them later.
Thirdly, don't leave out important details. Including details such as bank account numbers and contact information for legal and financial professionals ensures that all of your assets will be easily located and distributed as you direct.
