Why is the will necessary?
With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. What happens if I don’t have a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. It is a commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Betteshanger
The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. When there is no will in place, your assets will be distributed according to the law, which may not be in line with what you want. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Writing a will in Betteshanger can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Storing your will 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. 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 cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
