Having a legally valid will that matches your wishes and provides financial stability for your loved ones is certainly an aspiration for most people. Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring an experienced Milton Keynes solicitor will ensure that your will is valid and thoroughly fits your requirements.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document used for people to lay down their preferences regarding the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of their death. Wills should be made in writing and signed by yourself and your witnesses to ensure that they are legally recognised. When a person dies without having made a will, their assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Types of will

There are different types of wills that can be used in order to suit the individual needs of a person. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • Single wills can also be known as testamentary wills and are the most standard kind. This type of will is prepared 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.
  • Living wills allow people to set out their wishes to decline specific treatments in the future in case they lose the ability to communicate their wishes at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

The word probate can be used to refer to the legal and financial processes that must be followed to deal with the estate and possessions of a deceased person in England or Wales. Probate processes consist of identifying the deceased individual's property, paying relevant taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

When might I use a trust?

A trust is used to enable a person to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are a number of different varieties of trusts and they each have different tax considerations. Trusts require the following roles to be satisfied:

  • A ‘settlor’ - this is the individual who puts assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ which is the individual who is in charge of the trust management
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual who benefits from the trust

Trusts are made for numerous reasons including to protect a family’s assets, manage the assets of a child or incapacitated person or to distribute assets during the settlor’s life or upon their death. A Milton Keynes trusts solicitor can help clients to understand issues within their estate and to arrange their affairs legally and as per their wishes using an appropriate trust.
