Why is the will necessary?

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 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. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. 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 Tunstall

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. 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. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Tunstall that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

How will your will be stored? Being able to safely store and easily locate your will could mean the difference to making a legally valid will that can be accessed and used right away, or dying “intestate” meaning that there was no will or that no will could be found. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. 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.
