Why do I need to make a will?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. What are the repercussions of not having a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. It is a commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

Keeping 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. 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. 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.
