What Should I Include in My Will? 

A will is a very personal legal document. Because of this, what you include in your will should reflect what you want your legacy to look like. 

Generally speaking, however, your will should include the following: 

  • List of significant assets
  • Named heirs to inherit property
  • Named executor of your estate
  • Named guardian for minor children and other dependents

Listing Assets in Your Will

Your list of significant assets should include things like bank accounts, real estate, investments, and items of significant monetary value. If you own things with significant sentimental value but not much actual value – like a family heirloom – you should include these too! 

Naming Heirs to Inherit Property

Never assume someone will inherit property unless you make it so in your will. If you die without a will or naming heirs, Texas law will determine who your legal heirs are and how much property they can inherit. This often contradicts how people actually want to divide their estates. 

Always keep in mind that an oral will or statements about inheritance you make during your life are unlikely to carry legal weight compared to your written will. For this reason, make sure your written will explicitly and clearly states your instructions for inheritance.
