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. 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. It is a common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

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

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. 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. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. Having a will in Pyecombe is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

The accessibility of 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 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. 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.
