Why should I make a will?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. 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. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Woolmer-Hill

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. A written will in Woolmer-Hill is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

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. 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 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. We will talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
