Why should I make 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. Without a will what is likely to happen? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Lancing

With emotions high to begin with, disputes can cause a massive amount of emotional distress at such a difficult time, Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes.

Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. A written will in Lancing is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Estate Planning Services in Lancing

As well as offering will writing, Brighton Wills also offer a comprehensive range of services related to estate planning. This includes everything from family trusts and probate forms, to prepaid funeral plans to make the difficult emotional time easier on your family.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. You may wish to put an arrangement for an LPA in place in the event that you need a trusted person to make health, welfare and financial decisions if you have suffered loss of mental capacity due to either accident or illness.

Keeping 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. 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. If your will is damaged or if your executors can’t find it after your death, then your wishes might not be followed and the people that you want to inherit your possessions and money might not do so. 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.
