Why do I need to make 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. What happens if I don’t have a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. Property, money and other assets can be lost to the state or frozen temporarily, and if a spouse remarries then children may not get their inheritance. It is a commonly held belief that the spouse or partner is the automatic inheritor of an estate when the deceased has no will. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. 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 Pixham

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

The accessibility of your will The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being found. Your will needs to be stored in a safe place where people can’t randomly find it, but where your executors will have ready access to it when the time comes and they need it. 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.
