Why is the will necessary?

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. 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. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. 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 Drellingore

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. 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. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in Drellingore that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Keeping your will 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. 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 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. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
