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. Without a will what is likely to happen? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. 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 process isn’t always as easy as you may think. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Nettlestead-Green

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. 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. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Writing a will in Nettlestead-Green can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

As well as offering will writing, Brighton Wills and Family Trusts also offer a comprehensive range of services related to estate planning. Whether you need family trusts or probate forms, or want to prepay a funeral to take the strain off your family in the future, we can help.

We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If an accident or illness diminishes your capacity to make good judgements then you will need a trusted person to make decisions for you, and it’s easier if you have LPA in place already.

Keeping your will The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. 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. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
