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. A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. Without a will what is likely to happen? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. 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. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Coldwaltham
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. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. Having a will in Coldwaltham that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

We can provide you with a service enabling you to put in place Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). You may need to plan your estate so that someone you trust has an LPA in the event that you have diminished mental capacity due to illness or accident.
The accessibility of 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 executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. If your will cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
