Helping you protect what matters the most. There are a few behaviours in life as responsible as making a will in Rochester.
Your will means that courts don’t have to make decisions about who your savings, property and personal possessions are distributed to, as it is all clearly stated in the legal document.
After getting a will drawn up, you will feel a weight off your shoulders. You will have the knowledge that you have created some order for a time that will be very difficult for your loved ones.
Don’t leave it too late! Make plans now to ensure your wishes are always followed in the future.

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. What happens if I don’t have 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. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

If you were to lose mental capacity due to illness or an accident then the trusted person that has power of attorney would be able to immediately take care of your welfare, financial affairs and health care needs and make decisions on your behalf. It doesn’t matter whether you are just taking a look at how are your estate will be distributed, if you’re buying a property, thinking about what will happen to it in the future, or just want to make some additional plans, having a will is a sensible decision at any stage of life.

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. When there is no will in place, your assets will be distributed according to the law, which may not be in line with what you want. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. A written will in Rochester is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.
Will writing doesn’t have to be an expensive, stuffy experience you put off until it’s too late!
Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. We offer everything from probate forms and family trusts, to plans for prepaying funerals in order to make life easier for your family at that distressing time.
We can make legal provisions for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If you have diminished mental capacity due to an illness, or because you have an accident, you may need a trusted person to have LPA and it will make it a lot easier if this is organised prior to the life changing event occurring.
The accessibility of your will 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 will needs to be stored in a safe place where people can’t randomly find it, but where your executors will have ready access to it when the time comes and they need it. If your will cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. 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.
The Society of will writers was formed over 25 years ago in 1994, and has developed into the largest, and a widely respected body for regulating estate planning and will writers. The Society of Will Writers act as a self-regulatory body by vetting practitioners through stringent membership requirements, proficiency standards and ongoing training.
The Institute of Professional Will Writers, formed in 1991, is the recognised body for protecting and promoting the will-writing industry, ensuring that the public is safe from the unscrupulous activity of immoral or unqualified will writers.
