Having a legally valid will which reflects your preferences and provides financial stability for your family is certainly an ambition for many people. Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring an experienced Cambridge solicitor will make certain your will is legally valid and properly fulfils your wishes.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used by people to indicate their wishes in regards 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. When a person dies without having made a will, their estate will be distributed in accordance with the law and not necessarily observant of their wishes.

Types of will

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Some of the most common include:

  • Single wills are considered the most traditional kind of will and are regularly referred to as a testamentary will. They are prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • For couples, the option is available for them to write 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 makes it possible for individuals to set out their wishes for declining certain medical treatments in the future in case they lack the capacity to communicate this at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

The word probate is used to refer to the legal and financial processes that are followed to handle the estate and possessions of a person who has died in England or Wales. Probate processes include identifying the deceased individual's property and possessions, paying necessary taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

Trusts

Trusts are used to manage the assets of a person, including their property, finances and investments. There are different types of trusts that are available, each having particular tax considerations. There are several roles that must be filled for a trust:

  • A settlor’ who is the person that puts their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is given the task of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is given the benefit of the trust

Trusts are made for a variety of 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 Cambridge solicitor will help their clients to recognise the need for a trust and to create the trust in a legal way, reflective of the settlor’s wishes.
