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. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. A written will in Buckland is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe Being able to safely store and easily locate your will could mean the difference to making a legally valid will that can be accessed and used right away, or dying “intestate” meaning that there was no will or that no will could be found. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. We will take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
