Making A Will

If you’re considering will writing in Redcar, we invite you to connect with us at Complete Estate Protection. Deciding to draft a will is deeply personal, reflecting your unique wishes for the future of your assets and possessions.

Many people assume that their nearest family members will automatically inherit their assets and estates. However, without a will, this isn’t guaranteed, and the absence of one can lead to complex issues. While it’s common to prioritise loved ones in a will, it’s also an opportunity to support charitable causes that are close to your heart.

At the core, creating a will is about securing the future for those who matter most to you.

What sets Complete Estate Protection apart from traditional law firms in England is our commitment to specialised, client-focused service in estate planning. Serving not just Redcar, but also Marske, Saltburn, Lazenby, Kirkleatham, Upleatham, Dormanstown, and Wilton, we’re here to offer expert advice and assistance in wills, trusts, and estate planning. For tailored guidance and support, please reach out to our team. We’re ready to help with all your estate planning needs.

Why Do I Need A Will?

Having a will in place means you can have peace of mind, knowing that your final wishes will be respected and executed. It offers legal clarity on how your assets should be distributed and ensures a smoother process for your loved ones during a difficult time.

Surprisingly, up to 70% of people pass away without a will, potentially leading to expensive and complex legal disputes over inheritance. This is particularly problematic if there’s disagreement over who should benefit from your estate.

Many assume that their possessions will automatically pass to their family upon their passing, but without a will, the law steps in to make those decisions. In such cases, if the family challenges the distribution, they could face the risk of losing out or incurring hefty legal fees. Without a will, there’s no guarantee; for instance, unmarried partners and dependents might find themselves without an inheritance if a partner passes away unexpectedly, even if they’ve lived together for years.

Remember, everyone has assets worth considering, whether it’s jewellery, furniture, savings, real estate (mortgaged or not), vehicles, or even a business. This remains true even if you believe you have little to leave behind. It’s also important to think about digital assets and online accounts — what happens to these after you’re gone? A well-crafted will ensures that all these matters are addressed and that the right people gain access to and inherit your assets.

What Do I Need To Consider In A Will?

In addition to selecting beneficiaries, a crucial aspect of will writing involves choosing executors and guardians, especially if you have young children.

If your children are minors, it’s essential to have a will that appoints guardians for them in the event of your passing. This document should also designate someone to manage their inheritance until they reach the legal age.

Another important consideration is the “Rights of Occupation,” which ensure that your loved ones can legally reside in a property, even if the ownership is ultimately designated to someone else.

Remember, the fate of your finances, assets, and personal belongings after your passing is in your hands. Making these decisions and documenting them in a will is the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out.

How To Write And Store A Will

Many hold the misconception that creating a will is time-consuming. However, when you choose a professional service like ours at Complete Estate Protection, the process usually takes just about an hour to discuss your circumstances.

For a will to be valid, it’s important to note that a witness cannot also be a beneficiary. Once you are satisfied with the content of your will, it needs to be signed, dated, and legally formalised. After this, safeguarding your will against loss or damage is crucial.

If your will is lost, stolen, damaged, or tampered with, it could be considered invalid. That’s why it’s essential to store it in a secure, fireproof location, preferably away from your home. At Complete Estate Protection, we offer all our clients secure storage in a registered, fireproof facility and also ensure your will is registered on the National Will Register. This ensures that your will is always traceable and safe, especially in emergencies.

On average, people tend to update their wills three to four times throughout their lives. Life changes, people move, pass away, or sometimes, there are disagreements within families. Your family might grow, welcoming new grandchildren or great-grandchildren. It’s vital that your will reflects your current wishes and is updated promptly when circumstances change.
