Why should I make a will?

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a 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? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Property, cash, investments and other assets may be frozen or the state may claim some or a portion of them, and if a partner remarries then your children may not get the inheritance that you want them to have. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. You’d be surprised how often there are disputes and wrangles between relatives over an estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Kingston-by-Sea

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Kingston-by-Sea is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe 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 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. 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 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.
