Why should I make 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. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. Without a will what is likely to happen? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. 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. It is a common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

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

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. 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. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

How will your will be stored? 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 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. 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.
