Guide to Hiring a Bournemouth Wills, Probate & Trust Solicitor

Do you want the best trusts, wills and probate solicitor in Bournemouth? At LocalSolicitors.com, you will find detailed profiles about each of the solicitors located in the area which can help you write a will, amend a will or deal with probate. You can also view solicitors in Bournemouth that can help with the creation or management of different types of trusts.

Having a valid will which reflects your requirements and offers financial security for children and loved ones is certainly an ambition for most of us. Although there are DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Bournemouth solicitor will make certain your will is valid and thoroughly matches your requirements.

What is the purpose of a will?

A will is a legal document that is used for people to set out their wishes concerning how their children should be cared for and how their assets should be divided following his or her 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 popular types of wills are as follows:

  • A single will is sometimes known as a testamentary will and is the most traditional type of will. The single will is formally created and signed in front of witnesses.
  • For couples, the option is available for them to make 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 is Probate?

The word probate is used to explain the legal and financial processes that have to be followed to deal with the estate of a individual that has died in England or Wales. Probate involves various tasks which includes the identification of a deceased person’s property, payment of taxes, management of the accounts of the estate and distribution of net assets.

What is a trust?

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 possessing their particular tax considerations. Trusts have a number of roles that are required to be fulfilled, including:

  • A ‘settlor’ who will be the person that places some assets in a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - this is the person who will manage the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who will get the benefit of 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 Bournemouth solicitor can help their client to understand vulnerabilities within their estate and to arrange their affairs legally and as per their wishes using a relevant trust.
