Why do I need a will?

If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still mourning. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. Without a will what is likely to happen? 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. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. 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 Abinger-Hammer

With emotions high to begin with, disputes can cause a massive amount of emotional distress at such a difficult time, You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A written will in Abinger-Hammer is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

How will your will be stored? The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being found. Your will needs to be stored in a safe place where people can’t randomly find it, but where your executors will have ready access to it when the time comes and they need it. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. 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.
