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 can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. What happens if I don’t have a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. 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 Pett

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. 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. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

Estate Planning Services in Pett

We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may wish to put an arrangement for an LPA in place in the event that you need a trusted person to make health, welfare and financial decisions if you have suffered loss of mental capacity due to either accident or illness.

Storing your will The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. 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. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
