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. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. What can happen if I don’t make 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 commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

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 Medway can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe Having your will stored safely and it being easily to locate could be the difference between officially dying “intestate”, and seeming to not have a valid will in place, and immediately having a valid, legally binding will available. 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. 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.
