Why do I need a will?

If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still 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. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. 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 Beltring

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Beltring is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

How will your will be stored? It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. Your will needs to be stored in a safe place where people can’t randomly find it, but where your executors will have ready access to it when the time comes and they need it. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. We will take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
