Midlands based and have decided it may be time to create a Will?
We spend our whole lives planning. Planning holidays, Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, yet very few plan for the end of their life. Yes, it's not a nice thing to have to consider and a few people probably think "why should I care? I won't be here!" but what about those left behind?
If you take the time, and it's only a little time, to sit and plan how you want your estate to be dealt with after your death, you can save your family not just time, but also money and potentially further distress.
Without a Will in place, or if you have one and no one knows where it is stored, then your estate will be distributed in a way set out by the rules of intestacy. These rules have been created to specify if an estate should be split or given to one person, how that estate is to be split and in which order your family members are considered when it comes to inheriting.
Maybe you want your estate to be split a certain way. Maybe you want a friend or a charity to receive a part of the estate. Maybe you want your unmarried partner to inherit all of your estates or you might want to leave a little gift to a carer who has looked after you.
None of those people can receive anything under the rules of intestacy!
This is why it is important to take control of those things you've worked so hard for, to plan ahead even if the thought of death scares you or seems decades away. It is also important to make sure that you have a Will that is created correctly, an invalid Will is the same as having no Will.
The Will Associates have trained Will Writers all over the Midlands and have decades of experience between them. We take the time to speak to you in your own home, discuss what requirements you have and suggest the best way of dealing with those requirements. We also provide another incredibly important service, the secure storage of your Will.
While you can store the final document in your own home doing so has some risks involved. What if someone cut out of the Will finds it and destroys it? What if you have a fire or it the documents becomes water damaged? We offer lifetime secure storage of your Will and all it takes is a phone call from your family to retrieve the Will.
If you are in the Midlands and reading this has given you the nudge that you needed to finally get a Will put in place, please call us on 0800 9500 700 or use the links on The Will Associates page to request a call back. We will arrange for a no-obligation appointment in your own home at a time convenient to you.
