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 helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What are the repercussions of not having a will? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. 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. 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 Wiggonholt

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. 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. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. Having a will in Wiggonholt is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

From family trusts and probate forms to prepaid funerals, we offer a range of services that make estate planning easier, and that takes the strain of your family during the emotional time after passing.

Keeping 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 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. 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. 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.
