Protecting what matters most to you. There are a few behaviours in life as responsible as making a will in Chilham.
It ensures that your personal possessions, property and savings go to the people that you want, in the way that you want, and that the courts don’t need to be involved in decisions.
Once you have a will you have one less thing to worry about, and will probably feel a sense of relief. You can then know that you have created a plan for a time that can be very emotional.
Make sure you do it in time! By making plans you can know that what you want will be done in the future.

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. Without a will what is likely to happen? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. 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. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

This allows you to make a trusted person of your choice responsible for your health, welfare and financial affairs in the event you suffer from a loss of mental capacity to make judgements due to illness or accident. It is always sensible to plan for the future, and that means having a will – whether you own a property, are buying a property, want to take a closer look at your estate, or just want to understand how the future will be should you pass away. We offer professional will writing throughout Chilham, and always ensure that your best interests are represented in the final document.
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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. Having a will in Chilham that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.
Will writing doesn’t have to be an expensive, stuffy experience you put off until it’s too late!
Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. We can help you whether you need probate forms or family trusts, or want to have prepaid funeral arrangements in order to reduce the burden on your family at your passing.
We can help you set up Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If you have diminished mental capacity due to an illness, or because you have an accident, you may need a trusted person to have LPA and it will make it a lot easier if this is organised prior to the life changing event occurring.
The accessibility of 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. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. 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 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.

Through stringent professional entry requirements for membership, and vetting of standards of proficiency, the Society of Will Writers provides an important self-regulatory function for the will-writing industry. They also provide ongoing training.
The Institute of Professional Will Writers (IPW) was founded in 1991 as a self-regulatory body to safeguard the public from unqualified practitioners and unethical business practices and has become established as a recognised professional regulating body which promotes the profession of will waiting in the United Kingdom.
