What are the reasons for needing a will?

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 can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. Property, money and other assets can be lost to the state or frozen temporarily, and if a spouse remarries then children may not get their inheritance. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

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

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. 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. Your spouse won’t necessarily inherit what you own if you are married with children. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. 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.

Estate Planning Services in Poynings

Brighton Wills and Family Trusts also offer a comprehensive suite of estate planning services alongside our will-writing services. 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.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. If you have diminished mental capacity due to an illness, or because you have an accident, you may need a trusted person to have LPA and it will make it a lot easier if this is organised prior to the life changing event occurring.

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. 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. Your executors can only guarantee that your money, property and assets go to who you want to have them if your will is a) found and b) undamaged. 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.
