Why should I make a will?

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 are the repercussions of not having a will? 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 common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

Storing your will 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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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. 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.
