Why should I make a will?

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. 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. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. 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 Long-Ditton

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in Long-Ditton that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Estate Planning Services in Long-Ditton

As well as offering will writing, Brighton Wills also offer a comprehensive range of services related to estate planning. From family trusts and probate forms to prepaid funerals, we offer a range of services that make estate planning easier, and that takes the strain of your family during the emotional time after passing.

We can make legal provisions for Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If an accident or illness diminishes your capacity to make good judgements then you will need a trusted person to make decisions for you, and it’s easier if you have LPA in place already.

Keeping your will safe 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. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. 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.
