Now, for most people, having a will is a foundational and fundamental part of an estate plan. You’ll want to do this once you turn 18 years old, even if you don’t have a lot of property. You want to indicate who gets what so that the state doesn’t control who gets what. You would rather be in the position of making those choices than having a judge make that choice. And so you should have a basic will once you turn 18 and become an adult.
