Although there are some DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Plymouth solicitor will help to ensure your will is legally valid and fully suits your wishes.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that allows an individual to communicate their wishes regarding the distribution of their assets and the care of any 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. If a will is not made, the deceased’s estate will be divided as per the law and not necessarily as per their wishes.

Types of will

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. Common types of wills include:

  • A single will is regarded as the most traditional kind of will and it is often called a testamentary will. A single will will be prepared formally and signed in front 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.
  • Living wills do not refer to the distribution of assets but instead, are utilised to lay out a person’s wishes with regard to their future receipt of certain medical attention should they lack the capacity to communicate this in the future.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the term given to the legal and financial processes that are followed to look after the assets and property of a deceased person in England and Wales. Probate involves several required tasks such as the identification of a deceased person’s property, payment of taxes, management of the accounts of the estate and distribution of net assets.

What are trusts?

A trust is used to control a person’s assets which includes their property, investments and money. There are different kinds of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each of them. Trusts require the following duties to be satisfied:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the individual that makes and includes the assets in the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person who benefits from the trust

Trusts can be utilised for various reasons including to protect family assets, to gift assets when the settlor is alive, to pass on assets upon the death of the settlor, to control the assets of a minor or to manage assets of a person who is incapacitated. Plymouth Solicitors can assist clients assess their requirement for a trust and to create a comprehensive trust that sets out their requirements.
