Having a valid will that reflects your preferences and provides financial security for partners and children is usually an ambition for many people. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring a reputable Chester solicitor will ensure your will is valid and perfectly matches your wishes.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that allows an individual to communicate their wishes in regards to the distribution of their estate and the care of any children following their death. Wills should be set out in writing and signed by you and witnesses in order to ensure that they are legally binding. 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 are the different types of will?

Dependent upon a person’s needs, there are a number of different wills that can be used. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • Single wills are also known as testamentary wills and are the most common kind. This particular will is formally prepared and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are an option available to couples who want to create near identical wills which allow them to leave assets to the same beneficiaries, normally each other in the first instance.
  • A living will makes it possible for men and women to set out their wishes for rejecting particular medical treatments in the future in case they lose the mental capacity to communicate this at a later date.

What is Probate?

Probate is the formal legal processes which are followed to address property and possessions following an individual's death in England or Wales. The processes involved with probate include the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of required taxes, the management of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

What is a trust?

A trust is used to control a person’s assets including their property, investments and money. There are different types of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each of them. Every trust demands the following roles to be undertaken:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person that puts some assets in a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ which is the person that is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual who benefits from 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 Chester 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.
