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 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? It is not always easy to think about what can 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. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. 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.

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

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. Having a will in Wrotham that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Keeping your will 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. Your executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. 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.
