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. A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. What are the repercussions of not having a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

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

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. 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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Ruckinge is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Estate Planning Services in Ruckinge

Estate Planning Services in Ruckinge

Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills and Family Trusts 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.

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.

Keeping your will safe 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. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. We will assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
