Why do I need to make a will?

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 makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? 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 commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

How will your will be stored? The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. 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. The people that you want to inherit your money and possessions might not be able to do so if your will is damaged or if it can’t be found by your executors after you have died. 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.
