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 can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. Without a will what is likely to happen? 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. 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 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 Broomfield

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. 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. Writing a will in Broomfield can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe 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. The people that you want to inherit your money and possessions might not be able to do so if your will is damaged or if it can’t be found by your executors after you have died. We will talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
