Why is the will necessary?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. 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, 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. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

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

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. Having a will in Leybourne is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
