Having a legal will drafted is one of those responsibilities that is easy to overlook in the short-term, with many people putting it off until it’s too late. Even though we’re aware of the fact that we’re not always going to be here, it’s easy to proceed under the assumption that we can take care of these minor details in the near future. But putting off the drafting of a legal will is a bad idea, which means that there’s no better time than now to make a will with the assistance of our expert will writers.
The UK’s current Administration of Estates Act dates back to 1925, and this is the legal framework that governs the handing over of your assets in the event that a legal will has not been drafted. As you can imagine, the world was a very different place nearly a century ago to what it is today. As a result, without a legal will, your estate could end up being handled very differently than you expected.
Here are some potential problems that could occur if you haven’t taken advantage of our will writing services in Horncastle or elsewhere in Lincolnshire:
- Even if you’ve lived with a partner for 20 years – but haven’t married – that person will not receive any of your assets without a legal will in place.
- If you are married with grown children, your spouse is likely to receive your entire estate, with nothing passed to your children.
- If you have separated from your spouse without filing for divorce, that person will still receive your entire estate without a will directing otherwise.
As you can see, there is plenty that can go wrong without an explicit legal framework in place dictating how your estate should be divided. But you can eliminate all uncertainty by chartering our will writers in Lincolnshire to help you with creating inheritance tax trusts in Lincoln or a probate trust in Gainsborough.
