Why is the will necessary?

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 helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What happens if I don’t have a will? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. 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. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Detling

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. 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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

Keeping 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. 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. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. 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.
