What are the reasons for needing a will?

If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. Without a will what is likely to happen? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. It is a commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

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

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. 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. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A written will in Hawkinge is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

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.

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. 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. 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.
