Why do I need a will?

If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. 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 Cuxton

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. When there is no will in place, your assets will be distributed according to the law, which may not be in line with what you want. 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. Having a will in Cuxton that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Keeping your will safe 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. Your executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. If your will is damaged or if your executors can’t find it after your death, then your wishes might not be followed and the people that you want to inherit your possessions and money might not do so. 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.
