Make a will whilst you still have the mental capacity to do so; if you die without a will, your estate is unlikely to pass in accordance with your wishes. It is never too early to make a will.
Review your will regularly and in particular after significant life events (e.g. marriage, divorce, buying a house, having a child/children).
Consider Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) as these can be very helpful if you lose capacity to make your own decisions. If you do not prepare LPAs and lose capacity, then the process to appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf will be more expensive and a much lengthier process.
