Why is the will necessary?

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. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. 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. 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 inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. 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 Worcester-Park

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. 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. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in Worcester-Park is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

The accessibility of your will The way in which your will is stored and is readily accessible could make the difference between you having a legally binding and accessible will, or dying “intestate”, due to your will not being found or usable at the time of your estate’s distribution. 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. We will assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
