What are the reasons for needing 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 helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What can happen if I don’t make a will? 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 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 Ewell

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. Having a will in Ewell that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

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.

The accessibility of 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. 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. 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. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
