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. What can happen if I don’t make a will? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Billingshurst
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. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Billingshurst that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.
Estate Planning Services in Billingshurst
Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills and Family Trusts we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. From family trusts and probate forms to prepaid funerals, we offer a range of services that make estate planning easier, and that takes the strain of your family during the emotional time after passing.
We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If an accident or illness diminishes your capacity to make good judgements then you will need a trusted person to make decisions for you, and it’s easier if you have LPA in place already.
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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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 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.
