What are the reasons for needing a will?

If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. 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 happens if I don’t have a will? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Best-Beech-Hill

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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Best-Beech-Hill that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Keeping your will 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. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. 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 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.
