What are the reasons for needing 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. A will can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. 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. 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. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. 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 Borough-of-Spelthorne

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. 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. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Having a will in Borough-of-Spelthorne is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Keeping your will 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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
