Why is the will necessary?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could 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 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. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Temple-Ewell

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. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. If you have diminished mental capacity then you may need to have estate planning done by someone else trusted by you, and they will need LPA.

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. 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 executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. 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.
