Why is the will necessary?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. Without a will what is likely to happen? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Property, cash, investments and other assets may be frozen or the state may claim some or a portion of them, and if a partner remarries then your children may not get the inheritance that you want them to have. It is a common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Brighton-and-Hove

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Brighton-and-Hove is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

The accessibility of your will The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being found. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. We will assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
