Why should I make a will?
With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. 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, cash, investments and other assets may be frozen or the state may claim some or a portion of them, and if a partner remarries then your children may not get the inheritance that you want them to have. 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. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Chegworth
These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. 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 Chegworth can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping 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. 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 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.
