Why do I need to make 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 happens if I don’t have a will? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. It is a common belief that is when there no will in place the spouse or surviving partner is bequeathed the deceased’s estate as a matter of course. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

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

The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. 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. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. A written will in Yapton is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

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. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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 talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
