Why do I need to make a will?
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. A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. What can happen if I don’t make a will? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. Property, money and other assets can be lost to the state or frozen temporarily, and if a spouse remarries then children may not get their inheritance. 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. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in New-England-Quarter
These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in New-England-Quarter that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

How will your will be stored? Having your will stored safely and it being easily to locate could be the difference between officially dying “intestate”, and seeming to not have a valid will in place, and immediately having a valid, legally binding will available. Your executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. The people that you want to inherit your money and possessions might not be able to do so if your will is damaged or if it can’t be found by your executors after you have died. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
