Get a Will in Stoke-on-Trent
You may be correct in thinking most couples in Stoke-on-Trent haven’t made a Will. There are many reasons why this may be the case and many excuses have been heard before;
I don’t have the time.
I don’t want to tempt fate.
Isn’t it expensive?
My spouse or partner will inherit my estate anyway.
Let’s look at each of these points in a little more detail. In truth, preparing your will through a legal entity isn’t time consuming at all. A qualified, local to Stoke-on-Trent consultant can visit you in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits your needs and will guide you through the decisions you are required to make and take instruction on special wishes or requirements you may have such as leaving a gift to your favourite charity.
You are not tempting fate by making a Will. The burden you could place on your family by not making a Will and informing your loved ones of your wishes and intentions could cause distress, heartache and break relationships within your family. The administration of your estate becomes more complicated if there is no Will.
In reality, making a Will isn’t expensive at all. There is a broader picture here. If there is no Will, the administration of the estate is much more complex. The process will be longer and could cost thousands of pounds in legal and court fees especially if there is an individual that contests any arrangement.
Your spouse or partner doesn’t automatically inherit your estate in its entirety. There is guidance within the rules of intestacy as to who gets what and how much. This may not align with what you would actually like and those you believed would be provided for may not be.
Making a Will is an efficient way of showing what your wishes are and provides for those that you care for. Take control of your affairs by making a Will in Stoke-on-Trent today.
