Why is the will necessary?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. Without a will what is likely to happen? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. 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. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. 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 West-Grinstead

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. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in West-Grinstead is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

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. 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 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.
