Why is the will necessary?
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 By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. 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. 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 Willingdon-and-Jevington
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. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Willingdon-and-Jevington is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

The accessibility of your will The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being found. 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. 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 talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
