Having a valid will that reflects your wishes and provides financial security for your loved ones is definitely an aspiration for many of us. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring a reputable Derby solicitor will ensure that your will is legally valid and perfectly matches your needs.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used by people to specify their preferences in regards to the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of their death. To ensure that a will is legally binding, it should be written and signed by you and your witnesses. 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?

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

  • Single wills are also known as testamentary wills and are the most common type. This kind of 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 enables men and women to set out their preferences for declining certain medical treatments in the future in case they lack the mental capacity to communicate at a later point.

What is Probate?

Probate means the formal legal processes which are followed to deal with property and possessions following an individual's death in England or Wales. Probate processes can include identifying the deceased person’s property and possessions, paying required taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

Trusts

A trust is used to enable a person to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are different types of trusts that are available, with each having particular tax considerations. Trusts have various roles that will have to be fulfilled, including:

  • A ‘settlor’ - the person that puts their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ which is the person that is in charge of the trust management
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual that enjoy the benefits 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 when they die. Solicitors in Derby are able to help clients evaluate their need for a trust and produce a comprehensive trust that meets their wishes.
