Having a legally valid will which matches your wishes and provides financial stability for your loved ones is certainly an aspiration for most of us. Although DIY options are available for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Bolton solicitor will help to ensure your will is legally valid and properly fulfils your expectations.

What is a will?

Wills are widely used to legally document a person’s wishes for the division of their estate and assets as well as the care of their children in the event of their death. Wills should be made in writing and signed by yourself and your witnesses to ensure that they are legally recognised. The estates of people who die without having made a will are divided as per the law and not always in accordance with the wishes of the person.

Choosing the Right Type of Will

There are different types of wills that can be used in order to suit the individual needs of a person. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • A single will is the most traditional variety of will which is often referred to as a testamentary will. A single will is formally prepared and then signed in front of witnesses.
  • The option is available for couples to draw up 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 are not concerned with the distribution of assets and instead serve to allow individuals to define their wishes relating to particular medical procedures that they wish to reject in case they do not have the capacity to communicate this will in the future.

What is Probate?

Probate describes the formal legal processes that are followed to handle property and possessions following an individual's death in England or Wales. Probate involves a number of processes including the identification of a deceased person’s property, payment of taxes, management of the accounts of the estate and distribution of net assets.

Trusts

A trust can be used to manage assets for individuals, such as their finances, investments and property. There are various different types of trusts which have different tax considerations. Trusts have some roles which will have to be fulfilled, including:

  • A ‘settlor’ - this is the individual that places their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person which enjoy the benefits of the trust

Trusts are created for numerous 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 upon their death. A Bolton solicitor can help clients to recognise vulnerabilities within their estate and to arrange their affairs legally and as per their wishes using a relevant trust.
