Why do I need to make 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 are the repercussions of not having a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. 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. 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. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

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

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. 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 to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. Having a will in Hextable that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

We can provide you with a service enabling you to put in place Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA).

Keeping 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. Your executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. If your will is damaged or if your executors can’t find it after your death, then your wishes might not be followed and the people that you want to inherit your possessions and money might not do so. 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.
