Why do I need to 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. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. 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. 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. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Brasted
With emotions high to begin with, disputes can cause a massive amount of emotional distress at such a difficult time, You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

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. 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.
