Why should I 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. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What happens if I don’t have a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. 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. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

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

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Ticehurst is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Estate Planning Services in Ticehurst

Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills and Family Trusts we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. This includes everything from family trusts and probate forms, to prepaid funeral plans to make the difficult emotional time easier on your family.

We can help you set up Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may need to plan your estate so that someone you trust has an LPA in the event that you have diminished mental capacity due to illness or accident.

The accessibility of 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. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. 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. We will assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
