Why do I need to make a will?

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. What are the repercussions of not having 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 common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

How will your will be stored? The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. 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. 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. 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.
