Why is the will necessary?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. 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. 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. 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 Upper-Beeding

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. A written will in Upper-Beeding is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. 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.
