Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Southend-on-Sea solicitor will help to ensure your will is valid and perfectly fulfils your expectations.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document which allows an individual to communicate their wishes with regards to the distribution of their assets and the care of any children upon their death. Wills should be set out in writing and signed by you and witnesses in order to ensure that they are legally binding. When a person dies without having made a will, their assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Types of will

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. Some of the most common include:

  • 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 the presence of witnesses.
  • Couples may want to draft a mirror will that is more or less the same as their partners and enables them to leave assets to the same beneficiary as one another.
  • Living wills do not relate to the distribution of assets but instead, are used to arrange a person’s preferences with regard to their future receipt of certain treatment should they lack the mental capacity to communicate this at some point in the future.

What is Probate?

Probate is the legal and financial processes that are followed to take care of the assets and property of a person who has died. Probate involves a range of required processes 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 enable an individual to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are a variety of different kinds of trusts which each have different tax considerations. Each trust needs the following roles to be undertaken:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person who creates and includes the assets in the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is in control of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who gets 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. Southend-on-Sea Solicitors are able to help clients evaluate their requirement for a trust and to come up with a comprehensive trust that meets their requirements.
