Why do I need a will?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are 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. What happens if I don’t have a will? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. 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. 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 Elsted

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

We offer everything from probate forms and family trusts, to plans for prepaying funerals in order to make life easier for your family at that distressing time.

Keeping your will Being able to safely store and easily locate your will could mean the difference to making a legally valid will that can be accessed and used right away, or dying “intestate” meaning that there was no will or that no will could be found. 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. 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 take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
