Find Wills and Probate Solicitors in Reading

Do you need a reputable trusts, probate and wills solicitor in Reading? On this page, you can see information about all solicitors in the area that can help you write or amend a will or help with probate related issues. You can also view solicitors in Reading that can assist with the creation or management of different kinds of trusts.

Having a valid will that reflects your wishes and offers financial security for partners and children is certainly an aspiration for many people. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring a reputable Reading solicitor will make certain your will is valid and thoroughly meets your wishes.

What is a will?

Wills are utilised to legally document an individual's wishes for the sharing of any property or assets they own, as well as the care of their children upon their death. Wills should be made in writing and signed by yourself and your witnesses to ensure that they are legally recognised. If a will is not made, the deceased’s estate will be divided as per the law and not necessarily as per their wishes.

What Types of Will Are Available?

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. Some popular types of wills are as follows:

  • Single wills are considered the most traditional sort of will and are sometimes referred to as a testamentary will. They are prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • The option is available for couples to draw up a mirror will which enables them to create almost identical wills, leaving their assets to the same beneficiaries, usually each other in the first place.
  • A living will allows men and women to set out their preferences for turning down specific medical treatments in the future in case they lose the mental capacity to communicate at a later stage.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the term used when describing the legal and financial processes necessary to deal with the assets and estate of a deceased individual in England or Wales. Probate processes include identifying the deceased’s property, paying taxes, managing estate accounts and distributing net values.

What are trusts?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of an individual, including their property, money and investments. There are different types of trusts available, each having their particular tax considerations. Each trust requires the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the individual that creates and includes the assets in the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - this is the individual who manages the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person that receives 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. A Reading trusts solicitor will help their clients to recognise the need for a trust and to create one in a legal way, reflective of the settlor’s wishes.
