Why should I make a will?
Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. What can happen if I don’t make 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. 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. 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 Betsham
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. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Having a will in Betsham is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Keeping 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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
