Why is the will necessary?

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 is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Property, money and other assets can be lost to the state or frozen temporarily, and if a spouse remarries then children may not get their inheritance. 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 through which this happens is not always easy though. 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 Painters-Forstal

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. 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. A written will in Painters-Forstal is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. 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.

The accessibility of 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. 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. 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. 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.
