Why should I make 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 are the repercussions of not having a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

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

These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. 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. Having a will in Singleton is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Keeping your will safe The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being 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. 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. Depending on your circumstances, it might be a good idea to lodge your will with the probate service, with a third party solicitor, or to use our storage system for keeping wills safe and accessible.
