What are the reasons for needing a will?

If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. What happens if I don’t have a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Property, cash, investments and other assets may be frozen or the state may claim some or a portion of them, and if a partner remarries then your children may not get the inheritance that you want them to have. 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. 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 Wood-Street-Village

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Writing a will in Wood-Street-Village can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping your will 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. 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 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. 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.
