Why do I need 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 A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. 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, 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. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. 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 Folkestone

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Writing a will in Folkestone can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Estate Planning Services in Folkestone

Brighton Wills also offer a comprehensive suite of estate planning services alongside our will-writing services. This includes everything from family trusts and probate forms, to prepaid funeral plans to make the difficult emotional time easier on your family.

We can make legal provisions for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may need to plan your estate so that someone you trust has an LPA in the event that you have diminished mental capacity due to illness or accident.

The accessibility of your will It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when 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.
