Although everybody’s financial and family situation is different, having a will not only helps ensure that your cash and assets are divided how you want them to be, it can save a considerable effort and extensive work on the part of the family friends when you pass away. A professional will writing service does not have to be expensive, you do not necessarily need to have a large sum of money in the bank to make a will worthwhile, and a will does ensure that your wishes are taken into account upon your death.
There are many reasons why people put off writing a will until it is too late. Some people simply believe that they are too young, others believe that it is not necessary to have a will unless they have piles of money in the bank, and yet more people believe that it is too expensive.
The reality is, however, that if you do not have a will in place, then your assets may not be distributed how you want them to be – your wishes will not be taken into account. Also, when you take into account the value of insurance policies, assets, shares, pension, and belongings, you may have more than you think. What’s more, considering how long it can take to go through the process of dividing assets belonging to somebody that did not leave a will, it can still be very beneficial to your family even if you do only have a small amount.
A will writing service does not have to be expensive, especially if your will is a straightforward one. You will need to pay for the legal storage of your will, as well as the legal drafting, signing, and witnessing, but this can total less than £100 in some cases.
It is important that you use a reputable will writing service. When you die, the executor of your will has to apply for probate to execute the terms of your will and your estate. If the will does not hold up under examination, or there are question marks raised, it can prolong the period it takes to resolve this.
