What are the reasons for needing a will?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. Without a will what is likely to happen? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. 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. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

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

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. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

How will your will be stored? It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. 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. If your will cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. 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.
