Why should I make 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 can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. What can happen if I don’t make a will? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. 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 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. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in West-End

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. 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 spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A written will in West-End is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA).

Storing 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. 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. 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.
