What is a will?

A will is a legal document used for people to establish their wishes relating to the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of their death. In order to ensure that the document is legally binding, wills should be made in writing and signed by you and witnesses. The estates of people who die without having made a will are divided as per the law and not always in accordance with the wishes of the person.

Types of will

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Common types of wills include:

  • Single wills are classed as the most traditional type of will and are sometimes called a testamentary will. They are prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills can be chosen by a couple and are practically identical, in which each partner will leave assets to the same beneficiaries when they die, normally to each other in the first instance.
  • Living wills do not refer to the distribution of assets and instead, are used to set out a person’s preferences with regard to their future receipt of particular medical care if they lack the mental capacity to communicate this in the future.

What is Probate?

The word probate can be used to explain the legal and financial processes that are followed to deal with the estate and possessions of a deceased person in England or Wales. The processes that are involved in probate consist of the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of taxes, the management of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

What are trusts?

A trust can be used to manage assets for people, including their finances, investments and property. There are different kinds of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each. Each trust requires the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A settlor’ who is the person that places their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - this is the individual who will manage the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who will get the benefit of the trust

Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes including to distribute assets during the life of the settlor or following their death, to manage assets on behalf of a child or incapacitated person or to protect the assets of a family. Solicitors in Aberdeen are able to assist clients evaluate their requirement for a trust and put together a thorough trust that sets out their requirements.
