What are the reasons for needing a will?

If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still mourning. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? It is not always easy to think about what can 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. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

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

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. 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. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in Westhampnett that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

The accessibility of your will 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. 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. 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.
