What are the reasons for needing a will?

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning A will can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. What can happen if I don’t make a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. 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. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Barcombe

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Having a will in Barcombe that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

The accessibility of your will Being able to safely store and easily locate your will could mean the difference to making a legally valid will that can be accessed and used right away, or dying “intestate” meaning that there was no will or that no will could be found. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. If your will is damaged or if your executors can’t find it after your death, then your wishes might not be followed and the people that you want to inherit your possessions and money might not do so. We will take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
