Why is the will necessary?
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. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

Keeping your will 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. 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 assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
