What are the reasons for needing a will?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are 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. What happens if I don’t have 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 inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

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

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Writing a will in Frindsbury can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Estate Planning Services in Frindsbury

As well as offering will writing, Brighton Wills and Family Trusts also offer a comprehensive range of services related to estate planning. This includes everything from family trusts and probate forms, to prepaid funeral plans to make the difficult emotional time easier on your family.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. 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 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 talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
