My partner will get everything if I die so there is no need to make a will – Myth or truth? Private Wealth

This is a myth as unmarried couples are entitled to nothing if there is no will. Even if you are married, without a will your spouse may only receive a proportion of your estate, not all of it. This can even lead to an inheritance tax liability.
