Why is the will necessary?
If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. 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. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. 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 Esher
With emotions high to begin with, disputes can cause a massive amount of emotional distress at such a difficult time, 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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Esher is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

We can make legal provisions for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may wish to put an arrangement for an LPA in place in the event that you need a trusted person to make health, welfare and financial decisions if you have suffered loss of mental capacity due to either accident or illness.
Storing your will Having your will stored safely and it being easily to locate could be the difference between officially dying “intestate”, and seeming to not have a valid will in place, and immediately having a valid, legally binding will available. 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. 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 take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
