Why do I need a will?

If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What can happen if I don’t make a will? 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. 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. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

Keeping 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. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. The people that you want to inherit your money and possessions might not be able to do so if your will is damaged or if it can’t be found by your executors after you have died. 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.
