Will Writing Solicitors Near Me
Posted on 9th January 2021 at 10:06
It’s often one of those things that we tend to put off. However, a Will is one of the most important documents you will ever have drafted. The process is generally straightforward and the best time to write a Will is the present!
While there are plenty of Will writing services available, it pays to work with a local solicitor who is qualified and experienced in this area.
Getting it right can save your relatives, and those you leave behind once you pass away, a lot of trouble.
Why You Should Have a Will Written By a Solicitor
A Will is a legal document that outlines what you want to happen with your property and assets after your death. It usually delegates the responsibility of ensuring your wishes are met to an executor. This can be a member of your closest family, a friend or even your solicitor.
There are, of course, DIY Will-writing services out there and, if your estate is very simple, these can be adequate. However, getting the wording right is important in any legal document and Wills are no exception. Get things wrong and you can end up causing more hassle than it’s worth.
Having no Will means that you die ‘intestate’. In this case, there has been no one formally appointed to handle your estate, which can cause delay and uncertainty.
When you don’t clearly state your intentions for your estate, it can cause disputes when the time comes to distribute your assets. Even if you don’t have much to give away, you may also want particular items, even those which may only be of sentimental value, to go to certain people in your family.
When Should You Write Your Will?
We all think we’re going to live forever. The trouble is that we cannot predict the future. The best time to write your Will is now. You can always change the Will later if circumstances dictate but making sure you have a written document that outlines your wishes is important, particularly if you have a family.
